Laptop running slow, programs not loading properly

I own an MSI GL62 with windows 10 which has been running rather poorly recently. It can take a long time to run programs and and when they do launch they often do not load properly. The laptop usually runs smoothly when booted up after being shutdown for a period but will become slow after running for a while. attempting to restart the laptop can also be difficult as it will often get stuck on the getting windows ready screen forcing my to shut it down. I have tried disabling background programs and scan browser and applications CCleaner often with little success. Is there anyone that can suggest a fix as my next course of action will probably a hard reset if not?

when it slows up look in evet viewer /task manager to see what is using the most memory / cpu cycles.
