help. I still use XP on my old laptop and desktop...this laptop is my kids and she is running windows 10. It is now running very slow and I have no idea what to do with it.  I managed to find the defrag tool and ran it, but that's about it. As I type the letters show up one at a time very slowly. Web searches take forever. She is trying to cut and past on a homework essay and it is taking forever for it to show up. I just simply am out of my wheelhouse. I am pretty sure its just a maintenance issue, but I don't know what to do on this thing. 

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The Speccy doesn't indicate any problems, and the AdwCleaner didn't really find anything of significance.  The temperatures are good, the hdd looks good.  The maximum amount of RAM the motherboard will support in this computer is what is currently installed.

 

Please run System File Checker.

The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces corrupted and incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.

Important:  There will be a short message at the end of the scan informing you of the results.  If you receive the message "no integrity violations were found" you don't need to do anything else, no corrupt files were found.  You should watch the scan to see the results at the end of the scan.

This needs to be run using an Administrator account.  

Press the Windows key OS4o0pO.png and the R key to open the Run box.

Type cmd in the Run box, press the following keys together to run the Command Prompt as an administrator.

Shift, Ctrl, Enter

Copy and paste the command below in the Command Prompt, then press Enter.

sfc /scannow

This scan will take a while to run, please do not abort the scan as this can result in damage to the operating system.

If integrity issues are found in the scan please post the CBS log using the instructions below.

To find sfc /scannow log click/tap on File Explorer, select the drive which Windows is installed on (this usually is the C: drive), click/tap on Windows, then Logs, then CBS.  If there are more than one log you can identify the log you want by the date and time it was run.  

Copy and paste the log at the host website I've suggested below.

This log usually is very large, for this reason you should use a host website like Dropbox to post the log.  You can start a free 30 day trial.  Once you have loaded the log at Dropbox post a link to the website.
