Windows 10 update

I had a message pop up yesterday about having to update my Win 10, so I set the onboard timer for 16:00, it started at that time and finished sometime after 18:00.

After it had finished I left it for 30 minutes then shut down, this morning when I fired it up it booted up really slowly and then said "please wait" on the screen, eventually I started to see the home screen slowly awake the icons on my desktop but it was mega slow, normally this happens in a few seconds this is a i5 with 8gb RAM so normally a fairly quick machine.

I did an internet speed test which was as fast as normal up in the 80 range, I then used the built-in performance monitor which looks really slow to my inexperienced eyes, please see the screenshot.

I just looked at defrag and the analyse said 0% defragged, I have it set to defrag on the fly, which seem to be working ok.

Can anyone advise?

It could still be either updating or installing Kev.
Have you gone to updates and seen whats happening there?

Look at 'Reliability Monitor' it will itemise actions whether failed or successful. Also lists all the updates it has/has not installed.

Beyond me Ted, I hadn't noticed my charger had come unplugged, no warning it just died, when I plugged back in and turned it back on there were several beeps, didn't count them, it eventually booted up after a bit of blue screen and a whirly thing (technical term) I tried to get onto the internet and it wouldn't, it did all the checks and said something about the adapter being screwed, so I shut down and restarted, got the blue screen again for a while then it's booted up and I have internet again. This is seriously doing my head in now, up until yesterday I had no complaints with my laptop.

I tried Reliability Monitor Ted and not sure but it recorded almost a ten until a few updates were installed and then it was nearer one??

If you hit control alt and del and go into task manager and performance it will show you the disk, cpu, memory etc and where its being maxed out. Processes tab will also show you what programs are hogging memory if you order them by memory. Is it a standard hard drive or an SSD? My guess if its a standard HD you will find the disk is at 100% and its probably the defrag process thats slowing it down. Defrag is a waste of time IMO. Kill all that, reboot and see what its like.

Quite often a Windows 10 update is in 2 parts - 1 before a restart and 1 after.

That its really not doing much at all. Should be fine with those stats but it still could be the defrag process causing the PC to be slow if its in motion. Memory is half full but still a fair bit left. See what its like after the defrag process or just top it, reboot and try it again.

It looks like its a standard HDD and not an SSD so the defrag may well be dragging it down.

Ok, I'll turn it off and report back after the reboot, BTW, it seems to run and stream just fine now, the only slow bit is anything I do on facts, posting or opening threads etc it can take up to 30 seconds.


Sorry yes, it is a standard HDD 1tb, It's about 3-4 years old now, and still under the PC World warranty which I've used twice so far, just had a new charger from them.
