Windows 10 seems to struggle with too many windows, where Windows 7 went strong

    While moving files accross hard drives, and doing some backups, my system almost crashed, and was lagging tremendously. I do much more hard core multi tasking usually, and Windows 7 handled it fine :(

    Hoping there's a fix!

    How long has Windows 10 been installed? I only ask as there have been several updates addressing a few issues and just wondered if you have these yet..

    I have had it installed a week

    Another problem I keep having is Windows File Explorer saying 'Working on it" when I try to look at a hard drive or folder!
    It's SO frustrating!
    Every other version of windows, 'my computer' has been instant.. but this file explorer keeps getting stuck on 'working on it' :(

    The more you use the machine the faster it should get as stuff like superfetch kicks in. Try running something like Ccleaner as well as this can often help.
    CCleaner - Download
