    Long story short, we have a machine with Win Server 2012 that becomes unusably slow after a period of time. Usually about a week. Meaning you can't access shared drives or it takes forever, you can't RDP or teamviewer in, and when I go to the actual server, its not usable either. It will take 10...

    Hey! A couple of nights ago I let my Windows 10 "Update and Shut Down" but when I booted it up again the next morning it took literally 10-15 mins to get the lock screen. After this it took a further 5 minutes to get to my desktop when I typed in my password. Applications take a minute or so...
