Fill out your system specs. Right now, no one know what hardware you have. Maybe you have a very puny processor?

Those CPU percentages for explorer, snipping tool, perf mon, etc are very high. I would expect snipping tool to be at zero, but it shows 14% in your pic.

Post another screen shot of task manager. This time with a checkmark in "show processes for all users".

Reboot and run msconfig.

Go to the startup tab and post a pic of what you see.

Go to the services tab and check "hide all Microsoft services". Post a pic of what you see.

Go to the boot tab, advanced options. Is "number of processors" checked?

I'm running out of ideas.

Try this as a test:

Uncheck all of those non-Microsoft services and reboot.

Do you still run slow??

Uncheck all of those items on the startup tab except anti-virus and reboot.

Do you still run slow??

You shouldn't need any of that stuff on the startup tab.

"Number of processors" should not be checked, so that's OK.

Not just yet.

Go to an administrator's command prompt and run sfc /scannow

If it finds any errors run it again until it no longer finds errors.

If it finds no errors, you could try a repair install.

Or wait for more comments from others.

Clean install as a last resort.

If you don't care about spending the time on a clean install, go ahead. But then you may never know what is causing this problem.

Doesn't look to me like SFC /scannow even ran.

You should see something like this if it runs and finds no errors.

You need an administrator's prompt to run it.
