    Hello,
    Sorry to read that since you installed Windows 10 you have been having performance issues & freezing.
    How did you upgrade to Windows 10, from Windows 7 or from Windows 8.1, or directly from a Windows 10 iso with new product id?

    Does your PC meet the minimum Windows 10 requirements: Processor:
    1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster processor or SoC
    RAM:
    1 gigabyte (GB) for 32-bit or 2 GB for 64-bit
    Hard disk space:
    16 GB for 32-bit OS 20 GB for 64-bit OS
    Graphics card:
    DirectX 9 or later with WDDM 1.0 driver
    Display:
    800x600
    Also have you checked that you are running all the latest drivers for the hardware you have installed within your pc, eg: Network card, wireless card, graphic card, sound card. Also scan your disk (C:/ ) for errors / and run integrity check with administration permission sfc/scannow

    Ensure that you have a good antivirus program in place and up to date, and scan for any nasties that may be on your pc. For an added security bonus, install and run malwarebytes antimalware (free version), and scan for malware. Remove any unnecessary programs & apps.
    Clear browsing history in Internet options or whichever browser you use, then check to see if C:/ drive is fragmented through clicking Analyse. If your C:/ drive is shown to be fragmented, then run defragmenter to Optimise. Finally....reboot PC, and check how it's performance is.
    I think you'll find it will be dramatically improved. Let us all know how you get on. Good luck!

    Hi there,

    There're many aspects that you can apply to make your Windows 10 run faster. Among of them are:
    1. Make starting up Windows 10 quicker
    2. Make shutting down Windows 10 faster
    3. Disable Startup programs in Windows 10
    4. Remove bloatware in Windows 10
    5. Make the Windows 10 Start menu and other Windows zippier
    6. Turn on Windows 10 Fast Startup
    7. Disable services on Windows 10
    8. Clean up your Windows 10 disk
    9. Defragment the hard drive on Windows 10

    The whole step is quite long, so that if you're interested, you can find the detail here:

    Your question seems to be more browser (internet) speed related than Windows itself. It could be your wireless driver is causing the slowdown. Is the slow start up your PC or when your browser opens? Is there a performance issue with apps that aren't running on the internet?

    Search "Adjust the performance and appearance of Windows". Then uncheck the features you don't need.

    I don't think it does,not that I noticed anyway and I've been using it for years. You get more free space, though.

    One of the best ways to speed up almost any PC is to install a Solid State Drive. In the last year or two they have become very reasonable in price. However, they are not free, and there is considerable labor involved in swapping them out.

    As orlbuckeye noted above, with the information you gave your problem seems to be more internet related. An SSD may not help much there. Have you tried using different browsers? Is the service from your ISP good?

    True. Very true. It's the slowest thing on a notebook, no matter how powerful it is.
