Being "setup as administrator" may not be enough.

It runs or it doesn't.

sfc /scannow will NOT run unless you use an administrator's command prompt.

If you don't get a picture like I posted when it finishes, it did not run.

It will take a minute or so to complete.

When you type cmd in the search field you MUST right-click cmd under Programs and choose Run as Administrator then click Yes at the UAC prompt.

Only then will the command line run with administrator privileges. Just using an admin account is not enough.

I don't have any further ideas.

You might wait for more comments from others.

Or do a repair install.

Or do a clean install.

Have a look at this tutorial, which explains how to optimize your Windows installation to increase performance:

Optimize Windows 7

If you notice no difference you may need to consider a clean install as the upgrade may be at the heart of your perceived problem.

However, as has already been pointed out, any new installation needs time to bed in as Superfetch learns which are you favourite programs and Windows indexes your system.

I assume you are talking about Windows Anytime Upgrade.

What that does is unlocks the version of Windows you are upgrading to, and then downloads the relevant files for the upgrade.

As the problem may lie with your original Windows HP installation, I'd be inclined to re-install Windows and repeat the upgrade.

You are at the stage now where you've got to stop going round in circles and make a decision.
