Hi All -
Yes, my machine is old now - Lenovo Thinkpad T410, I think I bought it in 2010. Intel i7, 2.67GHz, 8GBN RAM, 64 Bit. But the thing has been tremendous, has been through a startup, survived being open in the front seat of a car accident at highway speed that totaled my car, and a houseful of as many as 15 children, many young/careless and many teenagers who may have accidentally installed malware. I don't want to buy a new one.
The boot is amazingly slow now - even before the upgrade to W-10. It gets to the home screen without too much hassle, but then I can't actually do anything for...way too long. Normal mouse icon, except when I'm moused over the taskbar, start menu, etc. This is true from sleep, much more pronounced from hibernation/cold boot. It's running slower as well, but the boot is the main thing, which tells me that it's probably apps/software and possibly malware/viruses that are messing with it.
Can anyone help me with this? I'm happy to run diagnostics, etc., and post outputs as necessary. Thanks!
