Hi everyone, I have just bought a new home PC. The spec is as follows:
8 GB RAM
Intel Celeron CPU N3050 Processor
I have noticed that the PC runs extremely slowly, when I look in the task manager the CPU is running between 80 to 100% when I first switch it on. From new I have only installed Microsoft Office and have not downloaded anything else.
I have looked this up online and have read that others have experienced similar problems but haven't come across a fix yet. I'm finding this PC to be far slower than my 10 year old PC that I have just disposed of! To emphasise how slow it is for example- as I am typing now there is a delay between the words/letters appearing.
Any help or advice on this would be much appreciated?
Peter- Mcafee scanner service is using 40% minimum and is constantly increasing / decreasing by the second to as high as 80%. Microsoft Compatibilty Telemetry also seems to be jumping anywhere between 10 and 30%. Service host:local system also is up there and is increasing /decreasing.
Your CPU has a low benchmark according to PassMark . After booting and on desktop, open task manager and see how long it takes for the processes to settle down. Seems the CPU is working hard initially.
