    Thanks again for everyone's suggestions. I'm going to email Herb a link to this thread, after reading which he can decide if he wants to surface here on TF or not. Thanks also for confirming my overall diagnosis, which basically boils down to "trying to cram 10 lbs of something into a 5-lb sack!"
    Best wishes,

    Yeah I believe 10 just slows down after a while too many inplace builds 1607/ 1703/ 1709 and now 1803 so if he hasn't clean installed in a while that would be the first thing I'd try.
    SSD would be 2nd :)

    See if these show any issues:

    Download PoolMonX - MajorGeeks

    Download SysInternals RAMMap - MajorGeeks

    Then there's safe mode boot to see if the issue remains.

    Force a full shutdown:

    Disable Automatic Folder Type Discovery:

    Option 3/3 here and in Option 2 (Libraries) set all to General.

    Have a read: Optimize Performance of Windows 10 Windows 10 Tutorials

    Run MemHistory Tool for a day or so and output log to .csv and check results:

    Run Essential Net Tools for a day or so with logging enabled and check log to see what has been connecting.

    Network Scanning, Security, and Administrator Tools - Essential NetTools

    Check all installed software for updates. Check for any software that installed a shell extension and update if updates are found. When updating make sure that software is not running.

    Run a disk check: chkdsk /f /r
