    PC EXTREMELY slow, hard drive light on solid most of the time

    I've been running Win 10 pro on a 4.0 GHz I7 pc with 100 mbps fios, ssd, 16gb ram. Pc has been GREAT. For the past few days it is extremely slow, in fact, hardly usable. Below is a screen shot from Resource Monitor. In looking into windows update, I see Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3206632) failed 13 times.

    This is my primary production pc, so need to get speed back ASAP. Can anyone let me know of things to try, or should I go back to a clean install (hope not). Thanks

    The CU came out about 2 weeks ago. Since its failed 13 times already, why don't download that update and do manual install. It may get around the problem. You can download it from here -> Cumulative update KB3206632 releases for Windows 10 version 1607 • PUREinfoTech
