When your computer only just meets the min. requirements just to run Win 10. One has to be very carefull what more they add to the load. I have only installed a dozen programs and half of them are actually just tools just a few MB. Yet that little bit of stuff has cut it's response times almost in half.
Simply opening task manager; settings; control panel @ takes several seconds with the blue whirligig going round and round. I spend a good bit of time just trying to keep this thing running instead of being able to use and enjoy it. I add some thing I have to remove something to keep the balance.
My best advise about Win 10 make shuer You have a real computer!!!!
A HP 15-foo9wm is just not enough. 1GHZ cpu; 4 gb memory but a big slooow HDD.
The main reason I am determined to kill Cortana, that is more of a resource hog for me than everything else combined.
When it is running with all services and options for it turned off in settings it is using 40% CPU and 50 % memory.
What can it possibly be doing? I do not even have a contact list or anyone I would even consider shareing anything with, closer than 5 miles. So who/what is it trying to communicate with????
