Windows 7: Slow due to hard drive?

09 Aug 2018   #11

Windows Home Premium 64 bit

It usually slows down after being on for a fair amount of time. Right now 13 1/2 hr. and all okay. It's usually seen on opening programs - easy ones like solitaire or hearts - but right now it's ok. If this happens again should I start a new ticket?
Updates are good. Do you know of a way other than hiding to stop the 30+ language updates?

Asked about WU because:
- Win updates runs at every start.
- There was an update that prevented WU to run properly and WU began to search forever slowing down the computer.
- Turn off recommended updates. There is a lot of trash and spyware.

On my computer, under services, WU is manual and on WU page is set to never check. I now install the monthly security only update.
