    You appear to have a HP/Compaq brand desktop computer.
    What is its model name and complete model number?
    What is the exact product number on it?

    Post #3 in that June 2015 thread has the same specs as post #1 in this thread (except for a different Windows operating system), so we can pretty much assume it's the SAME computer.
    brndthm:
    You have a HP Pavilion p6-2310ea Desktop PC which was introduced in September 2012 in the U.K. and came with Windows 8 64-bit.
    It supports up to 32 GB of RAM, so you should consider adding another 4 GB to the 4 GB currently in it so it'll run with 8 GB.
    Adding more RAM is one of the best ways to improve speed and performance in a computer.

    We don't know how you use your computer and what's installed and running in it, so there could be several reasons why it's running slow and has a long startup time.
    It would be difficult and time-consuming to help you from here, so you should consider having a computer-knowledgeable family member or friend help you.

    From your June 2015 thread:
    From this thread:
    It looks like the same computer to me, but that's immaterial whether it is or not.
    There could be several reasons why you're having those issues.
