Windows 10: 10 on a Netbook? SUCCESS!
Sounds like you didn't install all the drivers, you just left what Windows found automatically. If you install the latest Intel graphics driver you should have some more hardware acceleration and improve speed. Probably this is a Windows Vista or 7 driver, use Aida64 to find out. If the graphics card is not detected properly, Windows 10 install the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter (no hardware acceleration, software only) and this makes the netbook look 2-3 times slower than it really is! If possible increase RAM to at least 2GB and it will make huge difference.

Have increased ram but having trouble using the program you suggested so have deleted-the ram has improved things, have also deleted most of the default windows 10 stuff, bing news, sports etc. & removed a couple of programs from the start-up menu.
Running much better
Deleting apps like Bing News & Sports shouldn't have any effect on the performance of your netbook but will give you a little more free space on your hard drive. As far as "removed a couple of programs from the start-up menu", did you mean to say you removed items that are being started during boot and running in the background? Stopping those things from running that will help with performance and free up some of your RAM. You can manage those items using the Startup tab of Task Manager in Windows 10. Any services or apps listed there that aren't essential should be disabled.
Replace standard mechanic hard disk with an SSD and it will be blazing fast! In our shop a 120GB has about 40€, they are not too expensive as they used to be.
