New computer just built:
Updated latest MB BIOS
Initially installed Win 7 from disc. - Key license accepted
Installed MB drivers compatible with Win7
Did not install updates as there was an issue, although Win7 tried
Free upgraded to Win10, - 3 failures of Win10 upgrade assistant to download (stuck at 99% for 12+hours) only after forcing computer to stop getting updates, and undoing firewall protection and typing after dos cmd " net stop wuauserv" to halt all updates that are running - then Win10 upgraded successfully.
Computer starts up fast,
goes to desktop fast,
Internet is very fast,
typing in google request goes smoothly
WIndows OS activities greatly lag
For example, on desktop, right click, select new folder.... folder appears & "new folder" name is highlighted in blue, .. typing in new name takes over a minute to register. UNLESS I right click on the desktop (off the folder) then my new name for the folder immediately shows up.
If I immediately request another new folder, sometimes only the blue highlighted "new folder" names shows up, but no icon, unless I wait or I right click off of it, onto the desktop.
If I open task manager, the text field takes quite a while to populate, in every tab. This is also true in task scheduler. (However the more times I go to either of these, and revisit the tabs, the fields populate a little faster each time.
If I download a file ... say malware bytes, and do a save as another name, the name I type in does not show up for about 30 seconds.
However, again, if I type in the google search field, the typing is rapid and smooth. At this time I do not have office installed so I cannot comment on typing in a word document
I tried the following as suggested on the net:
- Clicked on adjust appearance and performance
- opened advanced tab and clicked change
- Unchecked automatic
- Clicked my drive system on select custom size
- set initial and maximum size to the value recommended by windows
- click set and then restart
When I go to task manager, with everything closed ( IE), memory is showing 19% - is that high? - with Cortana being 72mb
Any ideas? this really gets me.. perhaps a bad load of Win10? Be nice to be able to rename a folder like usual... as well as other things..
