My 8-year old HP Touchsmart (a fantastic machine) is running extremely slow.


I can't say that it happened suddenly - more like slower and slower over time.


We upgraded to Windows 7 Professional several years ago and it has run fine for several years.


Right now it's on the verge of what can be considered usable - my spouse mainly uses it for reading email in the browser but it is painfully slow.


I have run Malwarebytes but couldn't see any serious security issues.


I'm hoping that you guys can guide us through at least a cursory review of possibly unneeded things that might be slowing the machine down.


I have a attached a basic snippet from the control panel System Info screen.


Thanks in advance for your help and time. 


We'll attempt to follow instructions carefully and will not attempt any other steps/remedies in the mean time.


If this is not the right forum, please direct me to a good place!
