Hello All! My Windows 10 is slow. It really shows in my touch pad speed at times. The problem began after I upgraded from windows 7 to 10. I immediately noticed that my Roxio DVD burner said that my subscription was no longer active. (It came installed on the computer and I've used it for 4 years. (Also: I have updated all drivers, firmware, and windows updates)


I have run malwarebytes, superantispyware, clceaner, vipre managed antivirus, and every other thing I can think of. Something is slowing my computer down. I admit that CMD: sfc /scannow has helped with the problem, but I was watching my CPU processes afterward and it spiked to 30% I was running a malwarebytes scan at the time, so I'm not sure if that caused it to spike an extra 25%. 


I feel like if I don't get this resolved I will uninstall my antivirus, run combofix, and reinstall the antivirus. 


Roxio is still on the pc. Could it be slowing it down? Is there a way to get my Roxio DVD burner back? I feel like I got hosed. Thanks!!

 How much RAM do you have?  I ended up adding RAM when I upgraded because 10 seems to need more.  You haven't given any details about your configuration for us to help you with.  One thing that can really help in addition to adding RAM is to put Windows 10 on an SSD.  You can buy 240 GB ones for as little as $65 USD.


 I use Nero and not Roxio, but I don't know of any reason Roxio would be causing performance problems.


 Good luck.

Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

I have Windows 10 and Roxio and they work very well together.
