I'm back. Patient is feeling much better.  It's usually just one awful morning and a lot of sleeping and the next day you are weak but able to eat and drink and walk around without falling over.

 

You might see some improvement if you can change the power plan from Balanced to High Performance.  It looks like the option is still there in Win 10.  Control Panel, Power Options.

Also if you go into the BIOS (CMOS) setup some intel systems have eco, power savings, quiet running or similar named options which when turned on (usually by default) will slow things down.

 

 

I'm not sure there is much else we can do to speed up your PC without adding RAM.  Next time you see your computer guy talk to him about increasing the RAM to at least 8GB.  Speccy said you had a spare slot so you could just get another 4GB stick and plug it in.  PC3-12800 DDR3 

Don't know what stuff costs where you are but Amazon has the exact same RAM  for $16

Usually all you need is a small Phillips screwdriver.  There's a small cover on the back and once you remove it the RAM is right there.  Pretty simple so you could do it yourself.

Unable to change power options.  Will add RAM through another backup comp guy.  This guy, for some reason, is against it.

PS.  It's Christmas Eve here.  Take some rest.
