    This question doesn't seem too hard to give you a few general answers and solutions.

    I'll give you a few options to upgrade, since this is most likely a hardware problem.

    Maybe the hard drive is a bit old, usually when you have an old hard drive it kinda slows everything else down.

    How old is your desktop?

    IF it's the hard drive, I recommend getting either a new one (cheaper option) or a solid state drive (slightly more expensive)

    I do although need to know what the rest of the specs are to see what we're dealing with.

    I would also try the "sfc /scannow" command, a quick search online should yield step-by-step instructions.

    Try these steps:
    - Update all drivers.
    - Turn off all start up programs from task manager.
    - turn off third party services.*

    *Task manager> services>tick hide all Ms services > disable services

    Maybe this will work out for you.
