new computer really slow!!!

HP Recommended
Pavilion All-i-one desktop
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My new computer is agonizingly slow.  I have only had it for about a month.  Runs Windows 10.

Any help to speed it up would be greatly appreciated

@kittywaugh, welcome to the forum.

 

When requesting help you should always include the make/model (i.e. p6-xxxx) of the computer and/or monitor. This information is necessary for us to review the specifications of them.  Here is a guide to help you find the model.

As soon as you connect a new Windows 10 computer to the Internet, it will run Windows Update, to download all the security-updates, and apply them.

 

Doing this download consumes:

* most of your Internet speed;

* most of one core of your "dual-core" or "quad-core" CPUs;

* some of the throughput of your disk-drive, as the updates are written to it, and then read from it, during the updating process.

 

Start the Windows "Task Manager", and click to the "Performance Tab",

and use the Windows "Snipping Tool" to capture a screen-shot of what you see.

Post that image here.
