PC just got super slow one day, and continues to be slow regardless of it being connected to the internet or not.  I thought it was the memory as I had put in a used stick with the OEM to up the speed a couple years ago, so I bought 2 new sticks and same thing.  Will be OK fast at startup then super slow.  That is all the troubleshooting I've done thus far.  I did not have any virus warnings or normal popups/adware like when I have been infected in the past.  Can you advise where to go next?  Thanks!

Clean your machine with Privazer

 

Then defrag with.Ultimate Defrag.

 

Then I would suggest that you disable useless startups, all are really not needed, except your antivirus. When you disable items from startup, a reboot is needed to feel the changes. Whats In Startup.

 

After the reboot, tell me how things are running.

after numerous attempts and leaving it run overnight, I have got nowhere.  I have however run task manager and I may have found the culprit.  Runtime Broker is at 60-80% of CPU.  Can you advise?  thx!

open your task manager, choose runtime broker, and choose end task, and then restart your PC, and see if that solves the problem.

I haven't been home much, but the killing the of the runtime broker and restarting does not work, eventually the computer goes to a crawl and if I can get task manager to open the run time broker is way up there and the fan is going like crazy.  As far as specs, I had a couple weeks prior to the issues installed windows 10...the rest I'll have to get

Any particular stats let me know.  I have a hp pavillion g7 2x4 gb ram.  Today when I got home the fan was a whizzing and upon actually being able to pull up task manager, Runtime broker was at a steady 92%!!!  I have done the above turning off the Windows 10 sharing and the turning off and restarting.  The 92% and locked up PC would be a good determinante that those did not work.  Any other possible solutions?

that was what I was suggesting earlier. How full is your hard drive?

?  I guess I just did as you suggested and killed runtime broker and restarted.  Good news though as of now, one of the five primary options listed in my link seems to have done the trick as of one day in.  No issues and no huge runtime broker %. 

 

As for hard drive 202gb of 446 used.

well, hopefully the runtime broker did the trick...only reason I was asking was a to full hard drive can cause a massive system slowdown and its something many people (me included in the past) overlook.
