Not sure what to do and I'm trying to avoid a full re-format right now as I don't have space on my external drive to carry over my important stuff. Right now it takes a minute or so to open up a webbrowser, any time I go to a new webpage, or scroll down it can be 30seconds to a minute before they load. Applications and games are also extremely slow to open, but once they do open they run perfectly. Running malwarebytes and CC cleaner doesn't find anything I need to fix, according to speccy and memcheck my hardware's running fine. I'm totally open to suggestions as it's really irritating to use this PC right now.

These are short but effective ways to speed up your windows 10

 
1. Making the Start menu
taskbar, and action center transparent is one thing, but Windows 10 still has a lot of other snazzy, built-in special effects. To really go bare-bones on the special effects, right-click the Start button and click System.
2. Disable Startup programs
If your PC is taking a long time to boot up -- and you've enabled Fast Startup and everything -- you may have too many programs starting up when you turn your computer on. To fix this, right-click on the Start button and click Task Manager. Click the Startup tab (click More details if you don't see the Startup tab) and peruse the list of programs that start up with your computer. If you see a program that doesn't need to be there, right-click it and click Disable. You can also arrange the list of programs by Startup impact, if you'd like to see the programs that are taking up the most resources (and time).
3. Go opaque
Windows 10's new Start menu is sexy and see-through, but that transparency will cost you some (slight) resources. To reclaim those resources, you can disable transparency in the Start menu, taskbar, and action center: Open the Settings menu and go to Personalization > Colors and toggle off Make Start, taskbar, and action center transparent.
4.Find (and fix) the problem
Windows 10 has a built-in performance troubleshooter that can help you find and fix any problems that might be affecting your PC's speed. To open the troubleshooter, right-click on the Start button and click Control Panel. Under Security and Maintenance at the top, click Troubleshoot common computer problems. Next, under System and Security, click Run maintenance tasks.
5. Reduce the Boot Menu Time-out
When your computer starts up, the boot menu is displayed for a certain amount of time before the operating system loads. This gives you time to do things like start Windows in Safe Mode. You can shave a few seconds off your startup time by changing the boot menu time-out, which is set to 30 seconds by default.
6. No tipping
In an effort to be helpful, Windows 10 will sometimes give you tips on how to get the most out of the OS. It scans your computer in order to do this, a process that can have a slight impact on performance. To turn off these tips, go to Start > Settings > System > Notifications & actions and toggle off Get tips, tricks and suggestions as you use Windows.
7. Run Disk Cleanup
This one's a win-win. It'll improve performance and free up space on your hard drive. Disk Cleanup has been around forever, but this trusted Windows utility can still help clean out the temporary files, installers and other junk littering your hard drive. To run it, just search for Disk Cleanup, run it and click the button labeled Clean up system files

Your logs don’t indicate any real issues. I assume you are running Winsows on the SSD which is getting pretty low in space around 15% free most recommend 20-25% for best performance but it can depend on the drive. Let me know on the clean boot.

Try the clean boot and also perform the following steps:

Download MiniToolBox and save it to your desktop
  • Right click on program and select Run as Administrator
  • Select to Run All options
  • Click Go and wait patiently
  • After it completes (a reboot may be needed)
  • MTB.txt will be saved on your desktop
  • Upload MTB.txt file to your next reply

Msinfo32 File
1. Click on Start menu
2. Type in command
3. Right click on Command Prompt in list and select Run as Administrator
4. Copy and Paste the command into the command console
msinfo32 /nfo "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\msinfo32.nfo"

5. Compress the msinfo32 file to .zip file
6. Upload the msinfo32 file from your desktop

I recommend unistalling NVIDIA GeForce Experience it is causing some issues and is not needed. Also some errors with Bonjour remove or disable the service if not needed.

 

I was unable to download your msinfo.rar file for some reason. Try sharing over file sharing site such as google drive, one drive, dropbox, etc.

My next recommendations would be perform the following tests on your hard drive, CPU and GPU.

 

Test Hard drive:

Seagate Seatools for Windows - Run the Long Test

 

Please Download and Run SeaTools for Windows

 

1.  Once it starts it will scan for all drives connected to your computer. 

2.  Select drive you want to test.

3.  Select the Long Generic Test under the Basic Tests menu

4.  When the test is complete you will see the result under Test Status

5.  The test will indicate either Pass or Fail

6.  Provide the Results in your reply.

 

 

Stress Test Your CPU - Prime 95
https://www.tenforum...t-your-cpu.html

  • Select the Blended Test
  • Record maximum temperatures and duration of testing.
  • Best to test > 3 hrs and abort testing as needed for freezing, temperature changes, etc
  • Please use the Microsoft snipping tool to post images to your reply

Stress Test GPU - FurMark
https://www.tenforum...tress-test.html

Make note of the importance of temperature monitoring and aborting the test in the GPU link
