At this point I think the problem lays in the fact that it is only 2.0 ghz and its trying to run 64-bit windows. Sounds like it is not worth saving imo. But if you really still want to try; at this point do not shut it down!. doing so can corrupt windows system files!. Just let it revert to the previous version. And yes its probably because of the hardware as well. Sounds way out of date etc. I would also try a clean install of windows following the instructions in the link in my signature which i will also paste below:

Windows 10x64 Build 1709

A 2.0 processor should be plenty to run Win7x64 without lagging. Straight from MS : If you want to run Windows 7 on your PC, here's what it takes:

1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor

1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)

16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)

DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

Have you checked your HDD for errors? Disk Check

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

It was a Repair Install took forever and finally failed. This machine was sold with Windows 7 64-bit, so I got to think Toshiba knew what it was doing. Ran Chkdsk, nothing, just downloaded malicious software tool from MS, trying anything now. Really at a loss.

Run a CHKDSK , link to tutorial follows. Disk Check

Can you back up your wanted/needed files? If so, I urge you to consider a fresh clean install. I posted links on how to do that earlier.
