Hi guys,

I've long tried to get to the bottom of why my performance stats (task manager > performance) are so terrible.

I'm a web developer so I know about keeping a PC tidy and free of bloat. I've run malware/virus scanners - nothing found. I've pruned the start-up list / processes to just what needs to load. I feel like I've done the basics to ensure a smooth-running PC.

Linked to this possibly is the fact that the search bar / Cortana is really laggy. It doesn't log my key strokes initially while it loads.

My stats are: AMD FX(tm)-6300 Six-Core @ 3.50 Ghz / 8gb DDR3 RAM / traditional hard drive (no SSD).

I realise this is a very broad question, but anything anyone can suggest would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
Andy
