Windows 10 Pro. 64/ version 1709 Windows 7 Pro/64

I personally use Ccleaner set at default and have been for years.
I highly recommend this free little program.

W7 home premium 32bit/W7HP 64bit/w10 tp insider ring

lookin at your spec thats a pretty old rig, not being personnal in any way
As the cpu only runs at a max of 1.6,
you really need to turn off as much as possible.
Go to blackVipers web site and use the standard settings for services.

If your not using IE, turn it off (control panel>>progs & features>> turn features on/off(top left) ..

Win-7-Pro64bit 7-H-Prem-64bit

Internet explorer is about the only browser worth using on a low spec's machine if it works okay that is :)
It using the least amount of resources I've found
Chrome and even Firefox use way too many resources imho and aren't any faster.

Heck I've been using Pale moon and it also uses way too much to operate.

W7 pro at home, W7 Enterprise at work

you didn't say if it the slow speed was due to heavy disk use b the system. If so, then take a look at this thread I started last night. At least for me, System Restore was the culprit.
System Restore causing heavy disk use after several years. Why now?

Did not want to put more time into this, so I took it to a repair guy, who said he found a virus. All is working fine now. Thank you all for your help.
