    That does not look like a HDD problem and a SSD would not help. But SSDs are nice to have.

    bruinator , if this was my system I wouldn't invest in a new system yet. I would first physically open up the box and make sure there are no obstructions blocking fan airflow near the processor or pwr supply. Then vacuum out the unit well.

    You can go to Microsoft's website and download a link to burn a windows 10 ISO to DVD (for faster upgrading).
    Here's a link to the ISO upgrade page https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10
    If you've installed any additional hardware...memory, graphic card, etc...before the problem started, I'd remove it.
    I would then back up all I need, blow away the system, reformat the hard drive, and reload the original O.S. Then take the Windows 10 ISO DVD and do a clean upgrade to windows 10.

    After 10 is running well. I'd reinstall removed hardware one at a time and watch performance as I go. Install a good antivirus and see how she runs.
