    Generalized slow down

    Over the past couple of weeks I have experienced a general slowing down of software initiation. Programs that used to be up and running in a few seconds are now taking 20 or 25 seconds to get running. I even see delays in how Firefox operated. I see nothing in the Task Manager that waves any flags.

    I have the system from a month ago on a spare SSD and booted from that. Everything is fine and runs as expected. Soon as I put he updated SSD in place and boot it - the slowdowns are back. Could this be a product of a questionable update?

    Other than normal daily usage, no changes have been made to the machine.

    Maybe you have more than one anti-virus running (windows defender + 3rd party). You can disable windows defender.

    Try using resource monitor to see what's using up system resources.

    Reinstall fixed it. And, no nothing showed any place and only Defender is used.
