    Is Windows 10 get?ting slower and lazier


    When I first installed Windows 10 I really liked it....but recently, my computer seems to be running much slower and at times freezes up for 30 or 40 seconds. Boot up and shut down seem to take forever, but when I want to go to sleep....it is instant. Anybody have any suggestions or ideas? I'm seriously considering going back to 8.1

    Welcome to the forums seasickseagull. Have you installed programs recently, then experienced the slowdown/freezes? Check your event viewer and see if it shows errors.

    No worries, it may seem daunting at first. Once you start looking around it becomes easier. have a look here

    event viewer report


    I opened my event viewer and I have two critical events
    one dated 2015-12-04 12:14:03AM
    and one dated 2015-11-24 7:16:09AM

    both events are the same Kernel-Power Event ID 41 Task Category (63)

    what does this mean ?

    Thank you?

    That points to the power shutting off. I would start off by removing some of the Dell software. It is your choice, but most is not needed.

    Also step 18 in the optimize tutorial, reducing start up programs may help as they wont run until you start them.

    Not at all, let us know. A couple more questions

    You did an upgrade install, is that correct?

    Do you know what BIOS version you are running, some Dell Laptops have a BIOS update for Windows 10.
