I noticed that Win 10 seems to be slower at most things, e.g. launching an app, changing windows, etc. I'll be back home later tonight, to try things out again, but If you have a tune up suggestion, fire away.
Not Authentic Windows Error and Won't run downloaded exe files [So

This can take an hour or so as the disc is thoroughly defragmented and start up files are moved to the front of the drive
Download the SDK web installer from here
Run the installer and select the following:
Leave the location to default
Windows Performance Toolkit
You must reboot on completion of the install
After reboot set aside about 30 minutes when you will not need the computer
When ready start an elevated command prompt :
Go Start > All Programs > Accessories or press Windows+X
Right click Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator
Then copy and paste the following command into the black box :
xbootmgr -trace boot -prepSystem -verboseReadyBoot
Now your PC will be restarted 6 times. With a two minute pause before the tool runs after the desktop loads
After the second reboot the MS defragmentation program is running and is placing the files into an optimized layout, so that Windows will boot up faster
The last Reboots are training of readyBoot. After the training is finished, you'll notice a huge improvement in startup.

Shazam! It took a little longer than advertised. A slower harddrive and lots of junk, so the defrag went overnight, then stopped because I wasn't here to give it permission to "make changes to my PC." But three quick reboots tonight and it is spinning like a top. Thanks for everything!!.
