    Did you get the message from sfc:
    Windows did not find any integrity violation ?

    Few more things we can do:
    1. Turn off the disk optimization sheduler
    2. Set Windows updates as shown in the screen shot
    3. Are you running any Anti Virus software ? if so temporarily disable it.

    How full is your HDD? The disk can start to thrash with fragmented files when it starts to get close to full.

    The 60% should be ok, but the 75% might be starting to be a problem. I would check both partitions for fragmentation. If fragmentation checks out OK, then this is probably not the issue.

    If you right click on the disk in Windows Explorer, then Properties, Tools, you should have two options. One to Check the disk and one to Optimize. I would do the Check first and Optimize second. The Optimize should tell you what the fragmentation is.

    Defrag time is going to depend on a lot of things, and can vary widely. But, about an hour is kind of in the ballpark. Did it test with no errors before you started the defrag?
