You have THIS HP Pavilion 15-n205tx Notebook PC which was purchased on June 21, 2014 and came with Windows 8.1 64-bit.
It also came with these hardware specs:
Intel Core i3-3217U 1.80 GHz dual core processor
4 GB x 1 of DDR3L-1600 RAM
500 GB(465 GB actual capacity) SATA 5400 RPM hard disk drive
Intel HD Graphics 4000 integrated graphics
AMD Radeon HD 8670M 2 GB dedicated graphics
Realtek high definition audio
Realtek 802.11b/g/n wireless
Realtek 10/100 Mbps ethernet

Considering how weak its hardware is, I'm not surprised at all that it has the speed and performance of a turtle.
We have no way of knowing how well it's maintained and what's installed and running in it, so that may be part of the problem.
