    W10 very slow to respond progress bar takes ages

    Hi all, First post hope i got the right section.

    Have a clean install of W10 and by the day it seems to get slower, if i open this pc or even another folder the progress/search bar takes ages to respond. also some programs cant seem to find relative paths set also takes forever.
    i had this problem years ago with vista and cannot think how i solved it.

    so far have tried virus scan, indexing on/off, sfc /scannow all to no avail, even though it is my older pc it worked perfect under W7. i only have 20gb on HD and std defender a/v

    system dual core celeron 2.5, 4gb ram 32 bit,

    Glad you figured it out. I had a slightly similar problem with a missing LAN driver (but I was using WI-FI instead). Disabled it (eventually installed the driver for it), and everything worked fine. You can check your device manager to make sure everything is updated. If not, it will expand the group it is in and display a yellow triangle with exclamation mark inside.
