Default I think windows 10

This week i started noticing a weird slowdown and speed-up showing up on windows 10. I use both duel drive 7 and 10. Windows 7 acts perfect. Nice and fast with no slowdowns at all. Windows 10 is doing the slowdown/speedup thing. I have looked at updates to see if there was any this week, no. Checked the rest and only GEforce has a update and that was yesterday. no change. I have run scans and nothing showing up. I know windows 10 can be A pita! This is outside the usual junk of the os. I figure if the windows 7 is working perfect then its not a hardware issue. If i am wrong let me know. Doesn't matter if i am on or off line at the time it does this. Am at a loss...

Maybe corrupted system files? Try running

Code:
sfc /scannow
As administrator.

You said you have run scans. What kind of scans?

Try monitoring your resource usage during this slowdowns. Maybe there is some app on the background killing all your gainz.

Honestly I see no reason to dual-boot 10 and 7. If something is not compatible with 10, just stay with 7. There is no real difference between 10 and 7 other than the UI and maybe some cool things like automatic driver updates, but there is no reason not to do it manually. After all there are utilities for both Nvidia and AMD to do this that offer extra functionality so...

Microsoft games. There are a lot of them for free as well as X-Box. Won't work on anything but 8.1 or 10.

I finally had enough of 10 so i took it out and put another new copy of 10Pro 64bit on it. So far that has fixed it. Only bad thing is everything has to be restored to the drive. Squrrey 10...

Dan, you could have used restore points to solve this irregularity problems. Then you can find out what was installed that started this mess.

Most likely it was one of the updates.

One of the things i didn't do was to set restore points. I will be doing that from now on. I thought it would do that automatically like w7 but...no.... I thought it would do a restore point even if it was new windows upgrade but nope. I have looked at the settings and can't find the right box to check so i am doing them manually.

one other thing. Before when i put google chrome in i would sign in and all my bookmarks and saved stuff would go right in. Not this time. There is no place to restore bookmarks as it was all on chrome. That sucks!!!

In my opinion, wiping the drive securely and reinstalling is the best way. Using restore points can take some time and may not even work. It's even easier to wipe a drive when you are dual-booting 2 Windows OSs. Also, a fresh start is always good. One should reinstall the OS periodically to keep everything in tip top condition.

Another issue with this new os is i keep getting these warnings:An app default was reset.
An app Caused a problem with the default app setting for .mp4, files, so it was reset for movies and tv. WTF??? I am playing a Microsoft game downloaded from there site! This keeps coming up and can't figure out what is going on. Damn w 10 anyway..

You could try disabling (uninstalling) the default Windows apps for media. That is done from the control panel ("Turn features on or off", or something like that), so you won't have any fallback applications for that kind of file.

Also, what about this? https://social.technet.microsoft.com...10itprogeneral

What things did you turn off? Maybe you can take screenshots. Right now I don't have Windows on any computer or I'd upload some myself.
