Only one. I'll try updating it and see if that helps. :)

Is the disk activity still high? Check Resource Monitor and sort by Total under Disk Activity. You should upgrade to a SSD. :P

You seem to have scheduled antivirus scanning. So when you missed the schedule it is probably starting immediately and affecting performance. Plus AVG sucks.

It's much better now than earlier but still slower than it used to be.

Can't afford to buy a laptop right now considering I've only owned this one (a cheap one) for a year, although I'd like a more portable one as I never take this outside.

You don't need to buy a new laptop. Replace your hard disk. Depends on how much storage you use. A 256GB SSD costs around €80. You will feel the difference. I have been using SSDs since 6 years. Best new computer technology these last 15 years IMO. Mechanical hard drives are just one big bottleneck especially laptop hard drives which generally are 5400RPM. What is your laptop?

SSDs are going to get outdated very soon by Optane drives that will theoretically run 1,000 times faster than SSDs. They will be released this year but will only be 3-4 times faster for now.

I didnt know about those, but I doubt they will make a (perceivable) difference. I've been on my new laptop for a couple of weeks now, it's the first computer I've used that has an SSD and I can't believe how fast it is. More drove speed would be wasted on it.

I got a 150% speed increase from a M.2 NVMe upgrade from an already fast M.2 SSD. When the windows logo shows up, I don't see the circling spots anymore.

I really don't care what's next. :mrgreen:

Use Windows Defender and occasionally scan with Malwarebyte's. As long as you know what you are doing, Defender is enough. :P

@FCBayernMunchen

Hmm, I submitted a post but it did not appear, so I will try again (hoping there wont be a double post)

I had this problem too just a week ago, what I did was tweaking with the regeditor. Just follow these steps!

1. Type regedit in the search bar next to the Windows Logo.
2. Navigate to Computer > HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SYSTEM > ControlSet001 > Services > Ndu
3. Double click on the file that is named Start
4. You will be able to change the value here. It is usually 2, change it to 4.
5. Reboot!

Will look into this though I try my best not to mess with the registry due to my lack of computer knowledge.

It might seem scary, but each value just stands for a different setting on how the computer should start up. 4 uses less memory than value 2, made my PC run 10 times faster.

They're still called SSDs. :P Instead of using NAND memory, uses 3D Xpoint memory Then there is Samsung's Z-NAND.
