Hello
I recently upgraded my older 2012 dell desktop computer from Windows 7 to 10
everything went well initially after the upgrade as the computer was running fast and smooth, the only glitch was that “voice recorder” does not work.

now after about a week the computer is so slow it’s unpleasant to use, documents and apps take forever to load as does Firefox Or Chrome.
All the While you can hear the hard drive working and rumbling.

is there anything I should try to remedy this or should I consider the computer at the end of its useful life ?
thanks

  1. Details on the parts in this system.
  2. How, exactly, did you Upgrade? Sometimes an in place upgrade does not yield perfect results. Especially coming off an ancient WIn 7 install, which might have all sorts of legacy crap in it.
