Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  List last 10 Event Viewer log
  List Installed Programs
  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course): p22004369.gif

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot. You will see the following prompt:


     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard


Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the p22004370.gif button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.

If your system is running slower, then you can follow these  steps, to improve the speed of the operating system:

  1. Check for the processors from the task manger, which are using too much RAM and processing. If an application is using too much processing close it. (open the task manage by using keyboard keys Alt+Ctrl+ Delete and select Task Manager from the options that will appear on the screen)
  2. Check the icon tray and close the unnecessary programs
  3. Close the Unwanted programs that start running after you log into the windows because these programs are also consuming the CPU processing. To close these programs, got to Task Manager and select the "Start up" Tab and disable the unwanted applications
  4. Turn off the visual effects and animations because they can make your PC a bit slower
  5. Run an antivirus to check for the viruses in your system. The virus can also make the system slower.
