[Solved]-Why Microsoft Windows 10 performance slowing down few months after fresh installation?
We have 8-10 active installation in our organization, I have installed fresh windows 10 in many of them from the original installation media. After a few months( 5-6) each and every one of them is slowing down. Their response time, startup time is increased.
I have a question about what exactly makes an increase in installation size and a decrease in performance. And what could be the best solution?
A few days back I asked this question on Microsoft community: Why Microsoft Windows 10 performance slowing down a few months after fresh installation?
One of active guy immediately provided the following answer:
Could be Updates which cause a lot of problems we see here every day. Could also be program conflicts. I’d go over this checklist to make sure the install is set up correctly, optimized for best performance, and any needed repairs get done: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wiki…
Start with Step 4 to turn off Startup freeloaders which can conflict and cause issues, then Step 7 to check for infection the most thorough way, then step 10 to check for damaged System Files, and also Step 16 to test a new Local Admin account. Then continue with the other steps to go over your install most thoroughly.
Update your drivers and BIOS/UEFI firmware from PC or motherboard maker’s Support Downloads web page, using the full model number, Serial Number or Dell Service Tag on sticker. Compare the latest drivers available for download with the ones presently installed in Device Manager reached by right clicking the Start Menu. Make sure you have the latest BIOS or UEFI firmware, Chipset, Display (Video), Sound, USB3, Bluetooth, Network and all other drivers, or else download and install the latest now.
Updating drivers from the Device Manager or Windows Update is rarely enough. The most basic thing we need to learn to maintain a PC is keep the latest manufacturer’s drivers installed from their Support Downloads web page.
Compare the install you did with this gold standard Clean Install of Windows which will stay that way as long as you stick with the tools and methods given, has zero reported problems, and is better than any amount of money could buy: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wiki…
The reason I ask you to do this is because no one of millions who have followed the install in that link have ever come back to report problems that I have seen. It is also a great learning experience that will make you permanently the master of your PC because you will learn what works best and have applied it with your own hands.
