Windows 10 Programs slow until restart.

For some odd reason, when I boot up my computer, all programs will be slow (for example, video games might have low framerate or typing into the internet bar is delayed) until I restart the computer. Then it's fine until the next day.

Programs I recently installed include AutoCAD, but I tried turning off all AutoCAD related processes using the task manager already and that doesn't fix it.

How can I figure out which process is causing this issue?

My process is to run, CCleaner, Malwarebytes, Defraggler, and SuperAntiSpyware to start with.

Then I use the tools in CCleaner to turn off anything that I don't need to have start at boot.

Make sure you have plenty of free disk space for your swap file.

And you can run...

SFC /scannow

...from the command prompt to see if it finds any problems.


Good advice Mike! Here's my start-ups! I have 4!
