    Open Task Manager. Click on more details and check the processes and services running.
    First try to find which process takes more cpu usage/memory. If it comes from a 3rd party program I'd advise uninstalling it (Control Panel/Programs).
    I see you have an ASUS motherboard, have you installed some of their software ? I had some trouble with them, namely AI suite which even when uninstalled keeps services running and had an history of slowing systems (this is years old but keeps showing up even on recent versions). Uninstalle very ASUS software and feel free to disable any ASUS services still showing up.
