I have a hp laptop running Windows 10 Home, Version 1909 . It is about 2 years old. Since new it has always run very slow, taking an age to complete commands. What can be the problem?

 

Grateful for any assistance.

Type in perfmon /report in the Windows Search box and hit enter.  The Performance Manager will automatically run a report and diagnose issues that are impacting your PC. Luckily for you, it will also recommend solutions for each problem found.

Not quite sure what this is telling me. Grateful for your further guidance.

Thank you for your response.

 

What exactly am I looking for and once a culprit is identified (how?) what action should be taken?

 

Thanks for your continuing assistance.

Open the Task Manager and click the Processes tab. This will display all of the processes currently running on your computer.

Click the "CPU" column. This will sort the processes based on their current CPU usage.

Find the processes that are accounting for the majority of your CPU usage. Usually there will be only one that is nearly maxed out at 99-100%, though you may have a couple of different programs taking up 50% each.

Post a screenshot of the Task Manager.

I ran the Task Man and also a perfmon/report again, Both screen shots are attached.

 

This morning, my laptop took up to 6 minutes to get to the Desktop screen. So slow.....

You can perform clean boot state to found out if any one of the startup programs and services causing the slow boot.
