After updating to Win 10 recently, I realized that I was lagging everytime I run some games. Even exiting them, it would still continue to mess up my CPU with heavy usage. With 16GB of ram this shouldn't happen. While in game, there was heavy graphic lag. I turned off all my additional programs in the background, did scans of CCleaner and my Anti virus. I also cleaned up registry with CCleaner.
Did some research previously and also turned off all the Customer Experience Issues in the Task Scheduler. This issue still happens every now and then. How do I check what exactly is the rundll32.exe is coming from?

Today 11-17-15 I restarted my computer to install the latest version of Window 10. (Not an Insider Build) The installation was going fine until now. It is stuck at 54%. The "breathe" animation on the percentage ring is still moving so it is not frozen.
I have Lumia 730 Dual Sim with Windows 10 latest update.
Since evening whenever I plug charger it gives me notification that "Phone Charging Slowly... Charged Phone is Happy Phone.. Always use Original data cable or charger that came with device...."
I'm using same charger which came with mobile. This notification is coming when I plugin data cable with lappy. That was okay. Because with lappy USB port it will charge slow but why with charger I'm getting same notification?
So every since wednesday i updated my windows (automatically when shutdown) and when i turn the pc back on it goes into repair and will keep restarting and repairing... I have to keep restoring to be able to even use the pc but windows needs updating and will keep doing this everytime, resorting in me having to restore AGAIN! This also happens when i try to upgrade to windows 10 .
As per title the three applications are the stock Windows Calculator, Movies & TV, and Photos. All three always start up together. I've never seen it happen when I'm actually using the computer but if you leave it unattended for an hour or so when you come back they'll probably be there.
This never happened with Windows 7 prior to updating. I've considered maybe it might be some multi-media keyboard combination mixed with a stuck key but an nkro test doesn't show any key registering when it's not being pressed and no amount of deliberate keyboard mashing has made any of the applications start up.
No other problems with Windows 10, just this one bizarre issue.
Was updating from windows 7 to windows 10 and the battery died now most things are really slow or are unresponsive. On top of that i cant complete the update... I have tried a restore but it didn't work with the update problem.
How to update a windows 7 to 10 on a Intel NUC with only 32gb of mSATA of SSD. The effective memory space of the SSD is about 28gb. I do have an USB external HDD which I use as a bootup disc/installer, but the limited SSD space in the NUC is a challenge.
What is the best way to proceed? How much space do I have to free up in the old Windows 7 so the installation will proceed properly??
Whenever I turn my computer on I am greeted with my motherboard screen and then white spinning dots on a blue screen, and my screen flicks black every minute or so. There is nothing else I can do. I contacted Windows support and they said my system was updating and it should be done in an hour. After the system has been "updating" the whole night it is still doing the same this. Before I had this problem the last thing I did was copy my main HD to a larger SSHD.
The copy needed to restart my PC, and it did. After that when I turned on my computer I would log in to a flickering screen, and other times a black screen. I looked at tutorials to fix it but nothing worked, so I attempted a system refresh. I think that is what may be causing this blue loading screen and am stuck at this point, ctrl+alt+del does nothing. I have a backup on my external drive so if somehow a refresh could be achieved it wouldn't be a problem.
Everything else is working properly on my machine.
I can open Task Manager and view all of the various tabs, but they are not updating in real-time. Rather, I am receiving only the static information from the moment when I opened Task Manager, and CPU is the only Performance graph that changes. Exiting and restarting Task Manager does not fix the problem.
Task Manager 1
Task Manager 2
As you can see, it indicates CPU at >90%, which doesn't make sense to me as I rarely see usage levels so high (except at startup). None of the other graphs are updating at all.
Resource Monitor behaves normally and it indicates the CPU is only running at 4% or so, which appears normal to me, as I only have these utilities, Chrome and Word active right now.
I am on OS Build 10586.11 (non-Insider) and just confirmed all updates are installed.
I both restarted and shut down the machine; the behavior remains.
Reliability History has no errors from neither yesterday nor today.
Overnight I left my rig uploading files to my Dropbox account and the transfers were uploading fine this morning when I noticed Task Manager had closed itself. I do not use the Dropbox desktop app, but rather drag and drop folders to the Dropbox web interface folders. (I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the problem, just trying to provide what details I can.) I also spent a few hours yesterday reconfiguring all of my OneDrive folders which are work-related. I use Office 365 and the OneDrive desktop app is installed, works properly, up-to-date with no sync issues.
Reviewing Event Viewer, the only thing jumping out (to me) is the DHCP-client error, which I'm thinking is the fact that my primary and backup machines are connected via ethernet (a change I made earlier this week with no obvious problems since), bypassing my router, ergo no assignment. The rest of the errors are fairly common to what I've been experiencing regularly.
Here is a capture of Event Viewer errors:
After reviewing the Troubleshooters, I'm not sure if any of them are applicable.
After I submit this post, I will run sfc /scannow and update with results.
if there are too many images, etc. This is my first post where I'm using captures and I'm unsure if I inserted these correctly and provided everything I can to properly describe the problem.
I tried the TP when it initially came out, and while it was certainly an improvement over 8.x, it had some issues that made me go back to 8.
The most glaring one was the forced update function. Oftentimes, I'd postpone the updating because I was in the middle of something, and then Windows would simply power down on me later at an equally inconvenient time. I hope the idiots in Redmond don't include this in the final product.
I found a couple of registry tweaks online that were supposed to remove the forced updating, but neither of them worked.
As always, I like to run up-to-date systems, but I prefer to decide for myself when to run updates.
I spent a while in powershell meticulously removing the stupid unnecessary "apps" that Microsoft so generously infested my computer with (I'm looking at you, "Bing"). Before I could breathe a sigh of relief however, I discovered that the blight came back after a normal Windows update.
Normally it wouldn't bug me too much, but I'm giving this laptop to some old folks who aren't very tech savvy enough to continuously remove the apps through powershell. Windows eventually needs to update too. So seeing Xbox, Bing, and Candy Crush (seriously, ***?) will only make it harder for them.
Is there a way to get rid of the bloatware and prevent Microsoft from typically shoving it back into the PC?
