    That's actually a little better than my specs. While changing or refreshing pages in IE, my CPU will shoot up to 40%. Screenshot below with IE open and idle. However I have no problems with slow opening of anything but one or two Store apps.

    Did you check in System on memory amount? Reason I ask is that you may have a mem stick that is bad or not seated correctly. You may also want to try a mem test.

    Being older hardware I think we need to check that first. Are you running 8 or 8.1?

    Please right click on lower hot corner Start flag and push System to see if you indeed have 2GBs of RAM.

    8.1 does run maintenance and checking automatically. Not sure about 8. However, you can run these tests just in case something is wrong with maintenance.

    Memory check: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/w...-your-computer

    Run Chkdsk. Windows Key + R > copy/paste or type chkdsk. Make sure"Fix errors" box is checked. You may want to run the extensive test to check all of the disk, however this takes some time. I would advise to since it is older.

    BTW, if running 8.1, Windows Key + Q is a great search method for research. Or advanced search here on the forum is great also.

    Strike that on the Chkdsk method. I was wrong in Run. File Explorer > Right click drive C: > Choose Properties > Tools tab > Error checking/Check or Lower right hot corner right click Start Flag > Choose Command Prompt (Administrative) > type chkdsk > Enter.

    One can also copy/paste by simply right click in Command Prompt box to paste.

    The memory test passed is what you mean by "done that link"?

    I take it via File Explorer you are attempting chkdsk? Did you try the Command Prompt (Administrative) method?

    Sounds like something is corrupt, especially if File Explorer is faltering. Try these:

    DISM to Fix Component Store Corruption:
    DISM - Fixing Component Store Corruption in Windows 8

    scannow
    SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8

    yeah, sorry!
    and would installing 8.1 fix any of this?
