Here’s a tip to speed it up!
One of the most common reasons we find causing this snail-like performance is Microsoft Updates that haven’t installed.
Here’s a simple check you can perform yourself (no technician required):
- For Windows 10 Go to Windows settings (the cog icon)
- Next select ‘Update and Security’ Within the Windows update option you will find an option to check for updates, click this even if this states ‘You’re up to date’.
- If there are updates pending these will now install (this can take some time if it hasn’t been updated for a while)
- Once completed, you will probably need to restart your machine (which can also take some time if it’s a major update).
It’s good practice to restart your PC regularly as well, since this will often complete installation of minor updates automatically.
