Hi guys is there anything I can do to speed up my Asus laptop running Windows10. It has gone painfully slow and even freezing at times . I am not very computer savy so don't want to get over involved but is there any easy fix I can try
Thanks

Install and run Ccleaner free version and you should see massive difference.

I would have to disagree and say that Vista is the worst OS that Microsoft has ever released.

W10 is designed for touchscreen devices i believe and any laptops that have it aren't fully able to use W10 to its full potential

May be worth trying this;
Go to start menu>settings>Notifications and actions>turn off "show me tips about Windows"
Restart your machine and hopefully everything should be good again.

Another possibility: Do you have Coretemp installed? Win10 does not seem to like it. This may be better

Thanks for the input guys I have tried both suggestions above and after rebooting a couple of times it is now slightly better but still nothing like it should be . but any improvement is better than what i had . Can I remove 10 and revert back to 8 bearing in mind i have very little computer knowledge ?
Thankyou

Yes you can go back to Windows 8, but 10 is supposed to be faster than 8.

Maybe drop it off with someone who can give it a quick once-over to make sure there's nothing running that might be slowing it down, and that all the drivers are up to date.

I believe that slow PC can be a sign of malware infection. There are are plenty of free on-line scanners available. Why not try one?
