Hey everyone! One of our customers has a nice all in one Lenovo PC that's just too slow for it's specs.


It's 2-3 years old, has an intel i7-4700MQ 2.4GHz CPU, 8gb of DDR3 RAM, Windows 7. 


More explanation on the slowness:

-It's extremely slow to boot. Desktop shows without images for a good minute sometimes.

-After leaving it alone after boot for about 10min, all applications still have a big delay to open up.

-Outlook was having issues with slowness, suggesting safe mode, but I fixed by repairing data file

-Applications "Not responding" comes up often

-Has Norton, but can't be the cause


Things I've checked:

-Task manager, Processes running on normal use, nothing using a great amount of memory

    CPU stays around 12% (not jumping even close to 100%) 

-Disabled all unnecessary applications in startup

-100gb out of 1TB HDD is in use, far from full

-Scanned HDD (Seagate free HDD scan software) for issues, 3 different short tests passed

    Currently running long test

-Scanned for malware with Malware Bytes, 9 pups were found, nothing big (will scan with others)

-Checked programs and features for suspicious applications installed, none

-Checked for add-ons in browsers, none

-Windows updates are up to date


The main thing is the slowness to boot and applications, so I thought it would be HDD issues, but nothing so far. It seems transferring everything to an SSD setup would definitely improve, but it's an all in one -_-


Does anyone have any suggestions for what could be causing it PC to be so slow? Let me know if you have any questions/suggestions.


I understand there is some sort of file I can submit to show details of the PC, just let me know and I'll do that.
