I apologize if this is the wrong section, wasn't 100% sure where to post this, but do really need help.
I have the Star Wars HP Pavillion with Windows 10 and have had it for a while, and it's always been quite fast. For the past few days however it's suddenly gotten excruciatingly slow. Opening a new window or an app will take upwards of a minute, used to take 2 seconds. The laptop also freezes quite often which never used to happen. I'm not 100% sure what the cause is because I don't think I've downloaded anything risky too recently. I'm not sure if this will help, but it's a weird thing that may make it somewhat easier to pinpoint the issue, Incognito Mode on Chrome is a lot less slow than regular browsing, but both are very slowly and it's definitely not just browsers that are the issue.
Any help with getting my laptop up to speed would be greatly appreciated.
