Has it always been this way or did it happen after an update?

I'd make a bootable flash drive with Windows to-go or create a new install on a partition, boot into that and see if the issue is there. If it's not you have an issue with your installation of windows or with something installed/not installed on it.

Good general idea, but maybe just boot into safe mode first and try that.

Yeah probably do that first. Sometimes Windows will break on it's own via update and Safe Mode could give you the same issue...or not? Even if the issue isn't present in Safe Mode the final outcome will likely be a clean install unless you can figure out exactly what the issue is.
Windows constant network/RAM/CPU usage, bloatware and re-installation of the bloatware and inconvenient updates that could bork your rig are the primary reasons I disable all that garbage. Windows is always just like I left it, no surprises.


Fyi, if you're making a new partition or Windows to-go stick, don't worry about activation or any of that if you don't want. Windows works exactly the same way without activation.

I finally fixed the issue!

I downloaded all of my motherboard drivers. I installed the first driver which was the Intel Chipset drivers, and instantly everything was opening much quicker.

After I restarted, everything opened instantly. Right clicking on icons or folders was quick again, opening Chrome was quick, opening other windows like the Networks and Sharing window loaded instantly.

I've been running my computer for more than a day straight now (not shutting it down, no reboots etc.) and everything is still running great. Before it would take about a day until everything was super slow.

Thanks to everyone that helped me resolve this issue! +Rep for all!

Haha yep, not having the Intel drivers sure causes lots of headaches. It's good to hear you're all fixed up now.
