Hello I hope this is in the right place.

 

I run windows 10 and recently it has barely been able to hold two firefox windows at a time. I'm a wow gamer (I know...) and I really just want to be able to use my computer that was once able to handle all the things again.

 

I know most groups need logs to help and I have them but I understand not to post here.

Thank you

What build of Windows 10 are you running? This makes a big difference. You can use the command prompt or power shell to find out by just typing in "winver" without the quotation marks.

If this was an upgrade from a previous OS I would consider doing a clean install of Windows 10 after backing up your personal data. 

 

I would also check the health of your HDD using Seatools for Windows. Do the short and long generic tests.

I like running bitorrent in the background as I play WOW and goofy things happen.  Take a peek into your task manager to see what is hogging all the resources.  If firefox is bloating up then it may be a plug in or something.

I shall do this now. I'm really sorry I don't know how I get a fresh install as I updated from the old OS.

I must admit I used to enjoy that a little. I will check task manager now, thank you

download a windows 10 ISO file,

 

then you can create a bootable/installation USB stick using a program like Rufus

I also agree that a clean install of Windows 10 should make your computer act like brand new again.
