I am publishing a summary record of basic things you can do to solve this problem, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient maintenance, because many readers reveal their computer reacting slowly.
Maybe the most important factor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Step 1. Update the explanations of your anti virus and operate a full scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable issues.
