    Generalized slow down

    Over the past couple of weeks I have experienced a general slowing down of software initiation. Programs that used to be up and running in a few seconds are now taking 20 or 25 seconds to get running. I even see delays in how Firefox operated. I see nothing in the Task Manager that waves any flags.

    I have the system from a month ago on a spare SSD and booted from that. Everything is fine and runs as expected. Soon as I put he updated SSD in place and boot it - the slowdowns are back. Could this be a product of a questionable update?

    Other than normal daily usage, no changes have been made to the machine.

    Maybe you have more than one anti-virus running (windows defender + 3rd party). You can disable windows defender.

    Try using resource monitor to see what's using up system resources.
