I purchased this Hp laptop au003tx 2 days back specs are i5 6th gen, Ram ddr4 8Gb, harddisk 1TB, Nvidia 2GB and its very slow my hard disk usage is always full and i have tried everything... Windows does not have fast boot option my boot time is 1min and 24 seconds where as it should be 30 seconds I installed HP support assistant upgraded every driver still performance is unsatisfactory my old laptop dell i5 3rd gen, 4gb ram and 320hard works absolutely fantastic i wanted to upgrade but this laptop is like a downgrade. I did run cmd command net.exe stop superfetch and net.exe stop "Windows Search" going to msconfig using 4 cores on start up, hiding microsoft services and disabling start up items. Everything seems to go on not responding. I have called the vendor he agreed to replace my 1TB hard disk with 256SSD tomorrow. If this does not work, im selling this crappy laptop.
Welcome to the HP Support forum. Thank you for posting.
I am sorry about your issues. The laptop isn't crappy (as per your words). The specs are top notch. Probably the HDD may be the slowest part of it and SSD will definitely improve everything but still it should not be that slow. The problem seems to be software related - Microsoft to blame here 🙂 Probably Windows doing some updates or McAfee the antivirus...
Have you completed ALL of the Windows updates ?
I strongly recommed you uninstall McAfee (if you still haven't done so).
1. Uninstall McAfee products from Control Panel > Programs and features
2. Restart the PC
3. Download and run the McAfee consumer product removal tool MCPR to complete the uninstallation and remove leftovers
