This is the slowest my desktop has ever been. It takes about 15 mins to startup before I can open a browser. When I look at the CPU usage it always goes from 2-100%, most of the time it's at 100%. Cant watch any videos online because it lags, even typing out this message is making it lag...

I would appreciate any help, and sorry if this isnt the right section.

Mostly when I have encountered slow startup, it turns out to either be a performance issue or an application blocking for some reason. (For example updating from the web.) Assuming your system is a MS Windows system, have you done a system cleanup? (Defragging, removing unneeded programs, pruning the applications automatically started up, etc?)
