    Performance Slows Down Substantially Couple of Hours after Reboot


    Each time I reboot my system a cycle of good performance for a couple of hours and then degradation into an extremely slow performance, sluggish/stalling software begins. I need to reboot my system when this happens, and things become okay once again.

    How shall I see what services are killing my resources? Task manager when this happens is extremely slow and barely functional.

    Hi, suggest you launch your task manager before this starts to happen.

    First check resource use when your PC is nominally idle 3 or 4 mins after logging in and create a screenshot of your task manager.

    Create further screenshots every 15 mins.

    When things get really sticky, be prepared to take a photo of your task manager.

    It may also be useful to have your resource monitor in- decide on the basis of what you observe. If so, also include that in your screenshots.

    When your PC has become unusable, post the screenshots and photo in sequence here.

    1. Have you ever modified your page file settings? Or are these default settings?
    2. If you do not try to use your PC after logging on, does the same thing happen?
    3. How long has this been happening? Can you think of anything that you changed or that happened just before this started happening?

    What build is your Windows 10?
    Windows key + R, winver.
    What type of disk(s) do you have?

    Thanks.

    Here is my situation. The first five screenshots of the task manager are with good performance. From that point, all screenshots including the performance monitors are with degraded performance.

    Hmm, that didn't show what I might have guessed- I may be missing something, but there's nothing there suggesting excessive resource use.

    Again:
    1. Have you ever modified your page file settings? Or are these default settings?
    2. If you do not try to use your PC after logging on, does the same thing happen?
    3. How long has this been happening? Can you think of anything that you changed or that happened just before this started happening?

    5. What build is your Windows 10?
    Windows key + R, winver.
    6. What type of disk(s) do you have?

    7. And do you notice any difference after a clean boot?
    What happens if you do a clean boot.. do not launch any programs or try to use the PC- does it still get slower?

    8. When it's sluggish, please post a screenshot of task manager, Performance tab, Memory and Performance tab, Disk.

    Thanks.

    Thanks,

    1. Have you ever modified your page file settings? Or are these default settings?

    I don't think I've changed anything...


    2. If you do not try to use your PC after logging on, does the same thing happen?

    I didn't try this...

    3. How long has this been happening? Can you think of anything that you changed or that happened just before this started happening?

    I think like one month...possibly. I don't really have a clue about relevant changes.


    5. What build is your Windows 10?


    Windows key + R, winver.

    6. What type of disk(s) do you have?

    SSD

    7. And do you notice any difference after a clean boot?
    What happens if you do a clean boot.. do not launch any programs or try to use the PC- does it still get slower?

    Clean boot? what is a clean boot? I haven't tried not using the computer after a reboot. But as I said I have good performance, and then after say some use of one day it deteriorates


    8. When it's sluggish, please post a screenshot of task manager, Performance tab, Memory and Performance tab, Disk.

    Okay.

    It could be your machine is trying to get V1803.

    Are you preventing the upgrade?

    If you go into Start > Settings > Update & Security > View update history

    Anything funny going on...failed updates?

    Please post a screenshot of your Update History.
    This should show if attempts to get 1803 are failing.

    Remember you can search for things.

    2. If you do not try to use your PC after logging on, does the same thing happen?

    - then please do.. and report.

    I don't really have a clue about relevant changes.
    Here's a helpful idea.
    First, use disk imaging routinely as is so often advised here. E.g. Macrium reflect (free). If you have disk images you can easily restore your disk/partition/Windows to a previous good state without technical help - even if you need a new disk.

    Second, what I do is to keep a simple text record of changes. I record when I create my next image (differential usually- smaller, faster, differences since first base image), then add each change in sequence.

    Thus if I need to restore an image and diagnose a problem I can redo the basic steps.

    Have you checked your PC for viruses/malware? From your posted screenshots I see a lot of processes I don't recognize. And it seems there is a lot of programs loaded into memory. Have you checked startup programs too? You may disable some of them from Task Manager STARTUP tab.

    Whilst it's certainly worthwhile doing an AV check, we have asked for a clean boot and to leave the PC idle to see what happens after time. That covers the issue of startup programs.

    I haven't noticed any programs that would alarm me, although it's clear a lot of less familiar ones are in use. Hence the clean boot request as a starter.
