My older HP laptop running Win 10 Home is becoming slower and slower when doing even the simplest tasks like opening a Word doc,or launching my browser. I realize all computers slow down at some point, but are there any scans I can do that will pinpoint what is going on here?  I'm using very little of the 4.00 GB of RAM I have installed, and have 338 GB free on my 500 GB hard drive.

 

Thanks

Direct to Softgrip;

 

 

Change Power Settings to Maximum Performance.

 

 

Please do not recommend anything that has the potential to cause system overheating and instability associated with overheating , the Windows High Performance Power Plan is a form of overclocking that can cause both and is something that fellow member 6stringer can most certainly do without, if you really must copy/paste information from elsewhere please do some research first, thank you for understanding.

Re advice of Freebooter re disabling the Indexing function: I am having trouble following the suggested steps. 

 

1. I assume "My Pc" is the same as "This PC", right?

 

2. I get to This PC\C:\ but how then do I get to Properties?

 

Thanks. .... batpark

Following another members thread is fine batpark but if you need any further assistance please start a thread on the appropriate forum, this will avoid confusion between the two seperate topics + prevent unwanted notifications going to the OPs inbox, thank you for understanding  :thumbsup:
