LOL, I was giving exact numbers. Anyway, resetting now. I've made a note of all my apps and addons I've had on there, they're currently in a folder on u2 for now, (6 gigs...) and once it's done, I'll just reinstall them all.

The hard drive is most likely 500 GB. Hard drives are not manufactured in sizes of odd divisions such as 465 GB. Windows will report less than the total drive capacity for a few reasons.

1. Some space is reserved by the file system.

2. Windows calculates 1 GB as 1024 MB, while manufacturers calculate 1 GB as 1000 MB.

3. Some space on the drive may be in use by a manufacturer recovery partition.

Hello, thanks for that. 465 GB hard drive, 4 gigs of ram, 2.2 GHZ processor. So I'll try a reset.

Of course, a machine which barely meets the minimum requirements does not usually allow much leeway. Even if your system meets the minimum requirements, that does not necessarily mean it will be able to run Windows 10 smoothly.

How do I find out the latter?

If something is causing instability, then possibly. If the machine is simply not powerful enough to run Windows 10 smoothly, then no.

I sort of have a note of all apps that are on it, that I put on it. Would a complete rewipe solve any of this?

Task Manager will continuously update and sort the list based on current CPU usage so yes the position of a particular process can change.

Is it OK, if tasks move, and never stop? In other words, if I arrow to NVDA.exe, it could be at the list 2nd, 5 second later, 30th. The CPU of NVDA can be anything between 5 and 29. JAWS was also second, but interestingly, found nothing about window eyes on the list. But its hard, as NVDA gives the most descriptions, so the others aren't ever so helpful when trying to compare. Because of that, can't give how much JAWS uses. But JAWS is a demo, so it might be different.

I don't know. Either something is causing instability or your system's



resources are insufficient to run Windows 10 smoothly.

OK, I'm trying to look again, but between either key presses, or NVDA



responding, there's a good minute. Since I'm writing this, it didn't



respond to my right arrow, to move to details.

Possibly. 10% usage is rather high for NVDA, especially if it is



consistent.

To view the list of processes and sort them by order of highest CPU



usage:



1. Open Task Manager with Control Shift Escape.



2. Make sure that the



"More details"



button is selected.



3. Navigate to the



"Details"



tab.



4. If you tab once after the list of processes, you will wind up in >> >> a



list



of header bars which you can use to sort the list by different



criteria.



The first header bar is



"Name"



Press the Right Arrow key a few times and you will find the



"CPU"



header bar. Press Enter on the header bar



to sort the list from highest to lowest CPU usage. After you have



clicked



the header bar, review the list again.



The item at the top will be the one using the highest amount of CPU



resources. Ignore the very first item labeled



"System Idle Process"



If the



"System Idle Process"



is not the very first item, then click the



"CPU"



header bar again to make sure it is sorting the process list in



descending



order.

You could look in Task Manager and check the CPU usage which >>

might

you



an idea of what process or processes are causing the system to



struggle.



Since we determined that the machine was a bit older, another



possibility



is



that it may simply be struggling with the combination of Windows

10


and



certain applications.

I assume this is a recent problem? If so, System Restore is



probably



the



best option. The Reset option means that you would have to



reinstall



all



applications and reconfigure all settings.

Hello,
