Hello,


Please help! I have Windows 10 Home Version 1703 OS build 15063.632 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor. I have the Intel Core i5-2450 CPU @ 2.50 ghz and 16GB RAM. I have been having a nightmarish time today with "not responding" popping up whenever I try to do pretty much anything such as open an app or web browser. Also, whenever I click on anything there is a long delay in response and there is even a delay when I type. I also completed the most recent Windows 10 Update yesterday. Prior to that I was having some slight issues last week but they were nothing like the issues I am having today. I had thought it may be a virus or trojan, but I ran numerous scans with windows defender and malware bytes in regular and safe mode and nothing came up. I also posted on the security forum here on Tech Support but had received no response from anyone after posting my logs.

Try a Clean Boot, if that works, then add one startup item or service and restart each time till the behavior returns, then you will know what the problematic program is.

Yeah, but I haven't noticed a tremendous difference.

Also, I forgot to mention that my start menu is also not showing up when I click on it, or when it does, it is a few minutes after I click on it.

I don't know if this helps, but I have run the windows troubleshooter a few times and I keep getting the same errors when it completes for windows updates. It then says it fixed the errors, but when I re-start and run the troubleshooter again, the same errors re-appear. I have attached the log for you to view.

Use this Windows 10 updater to update Windows instead:

I used the uploader and a message comes up that says thank you for have the most recent version of Windows 10.

Alright... So here is an update on my Windows 10 issues...

I noticed yesterday in my task manager that my disk space kept going up to 100% utilization and clearly overworking it. Something in the start menu/Cortana/search function is possibly what was causing this in my opinion. I performed the following tasks after doing some independent research and now my computer seems to be running MUCH BETTER.

- Disabled Cortana
- Disabled Windows Search
- Disabled SuperFetch
- Ran a disk check - chkdsk.exe /f /r

After doing all of these the performance has tremendously improved and my hard disk is not running anywhere near 100% anymore.

My questions now are:

Do you recommend keeping the settings that I already performed or are they unsafe?

Do you recommend resetting my virtual memory as well? I currently have 16 GB of memory and have heard mixed opinions about the need to set the virtual memory with 16 GB. If so, what should I set it at on my 64 bit system?

Are there any other recommendations you have for me to optimize my system since the most recent Windows 10 update?

Thanks for all of your time and assistance!

Perhaps you had a minor bad spot on the disk and run chkdsk /r resolved the issue. Running with /f and /r is a bit redundant since /r will attempt to recover data in addition to the functions of /r.

Would you recommend setting virtual memory as well?
