    I am working on a Inspiron 3265 all-in-one that seems very slow. It is running Windows 10 64B, 6gb ram quad core. I will attach to a responder...Thank you.

    Slow to boot and/or loading windows.
    Slow even when windows is loaded
    Slow only on internet
    etc.

    Send the URL of the Speccy

    Thanks for the reply. The system is sluggish although I have a 29 mbps cable connection. I think I have some memory hogging services. I will publish the Speccy next

    So while I look at Speccy can you answer the questions please
    SLOW in which respect as your last post may suggest you mean only on browsing

    That said your likely problem is McAfee
    Windows 10 Home 64-bit

    Computer type: All in one

    Installation Date: 07/18/18 2:35:20 PM
    Windows Security Center

    Windows Defender
    Windows Defender:
    Disabled

    Firewall
    Firewall:
    Enabled
    Display Name:
    McAfee Firewall


    Antivirus

    Windows Defender
    Antivirus:
    Disabled
    Virus Signature Database:
    Up to date

    McAfee VirusScan
    Antivirus:
    Enabled

    Virus Signature Database:
    Up to date

    I strongly recommend you uninstall all of McAfee and use the Windows Firewall and the included Windows Defender
    I am reasonably certain that you will immediately notice the difference.
    Even if McAfee is the paid for version, there is no point in keeping something, if it is found to be the culprit and IF I am wrong you can of course reinstall it

    Additionally
    CCleanerSkipUAC
    CCleaner is not needed on 10 and run in default mode WILL cause problems and the registry cleaner of CCleaner is an absolute NO on 10 - indeed it should never be used as a maintenance tool on any OS from 7.
    If used it is only ever properly used, as a troubleshooting tool. Like indeed any other registry tool

    Thanks again for your suggestions. I agree it is mostly browsing speed. I figured McAfee was the main culprit. I will uninstall it and turn Defender and Windows firewall back on. I definitely don't use any reg cleaner..Is it ok to disable UAC?

    The performance improved as you suggested but I am still a little concerned that the ram usage stays at 2.7gb our of 6 while at rest

    It will do, as ram will always be used by 10 even when at rest
    If you look at windows 10 resource monitor memory I am reasonably convinced you will find all is in order
    When you open resource monitor you will see how the 2.7 is being used.
    https://www.ghacks.net/2017/12/28/a-detailed-windows-resource-monitor-guide/

    and here is what each type of allocation means
    Here is what each of these means. They will add up to almost what you have installed, but expect them to come up a little short.

    Hardware Reserved
    This is the BIOS, system drivers, hardware drivers etc.

    In Use
    This is the total memory in use on the system.

    Modified
    This is memory that is still held, but hasn’t been used recently. Eventually it will be flushed or written to the page file, and can be called into service quickly if resource demands require it.

    Standby
    This is paged memory that hasn’t been cleared out yet, but again, hasn’t been used recently. They are linked to the working sets of their owning process, and can “go active” if the process requests the data, but they can also be cleared out to free up RAM if demand climbs.

    Free
    This is memory that is free and clear and ready to be allocated to a process as needed.
