The gaming graphics score is based on the primary graphics adapter. If this system has linked or multiple graphics adapters, some software applications may see additional performance benefits.
Caution: Based on the results of the WinSAT Disk assessment, your system drive may have slower response times under some workloads. Performance results will depend on the specific applications used and the amount of memory available. If your experience is satisfactory, no action is needed.

System running slow is not a Networking issue, so I moved your thread. I wouldn't want to hazard a guess about the possible cause, but possible causes include hardware defect, disk needs to be defragged, insufficient free space on system disk, temp folders with too much junk, too many programs running and just general system corruption.
