Hi all- 


I have a Lenovo x120 with and AMD E350 Processor, 1.6ghz and 16 gb of RAM....so I recognize this is no super computer.  that said, since it was updated to windows 10 about 6 months ago, it is painfully slow.  As much as I can't stand windows 10 and an interface where I can't find anything, I can't stand the fact that it is slow.


I have read some of the threads here about uninstalling and reinstalling a lot of the programs because getting those with the latest drivers could help, but I would have no idea which aspects of the system need new drivers and programs.  If anyone has any suggestions as to what what I could do to diagnose problems to see if trying to go through those steps will help before committing that process.  Otherwise, I am tempted to simply get a new Mac......where I can actually find things.

 You can always install the free program Classic Shell which will make Windows 10 look and feel like 7, Vista, or XP, but it's not going to speed up that slow CPU you have.  Before going to a Mac though, you should try Linux Mint which takes much less resource than Windows and has a user interface very similar to Windows.  You can download it here:

https://linuxmint.com/download_lmde.php .  You don't have to install anything, you can burn it to a DVD and boot from it.  In less than 4 minutes you'll be up and running with it.  If you put it on a flash drive, it'll boot in under 1 minute.


 Good luck.

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