    If you upgraded to Windows 10 saving your files and other stuff, not choosing to install Windows 10 fresh, there may be drivers or left-over.dll's slowing Windows 10 down

    I would recommend once upgraded get you'r self the finder key at nirsoft then do a complete new install back up what u want to keep. Upgrade's are a right pain but you have to do upgrade first to get you window 10 key.

    It hasn't slowed things down on my three computers. Try running CCleaner to tidy up and check that no unnecessary programs are running at startup.

    It was slow in the beginning, but getting faster and faster these days. Uninstalled some programs, used system optimization tool to clean everything it suggested.
