Probably a slow driver or a start up program slowing it down.

Update your driver. Meanwhile, I will think of something (hopefully) in that 2 hour.

Every driver is up-to-date. For the disabling start up programs in msconfig, it didn't affect the speed so I enable it, inform me if I need to disable it but it's really didn't have any affect that speeds up the speed.

How about start up service on computer management>services and applications>services?

Set all of non essential service to manual, non priority service to delay start. You can find a list of thing you can change and not affect operation online.

Can you use a Restore Point to take your machine back to a time prior to the slowdown?

Ran chkdsk, only saw 175 large file records processed and 57 reparse records processed in the stage 1 (122368 file records processed). Stage 2 and 3 have 0 in every section except the file records processed.

I had that problem too. It was my hard drive :/ 
I recommend to try another hard drive and note the results.

What is non essential service? Sorry because I'm just a computer newbie.

I don't have any other hard drive but I'm PLANNING to buy a SSD soon, just PLANNING, 40% not buying in an emergency case.

Window search can be turned off, print spooler (if you don't use printer), bluetooth (if you don't use bluetooth), just to name a few.

Not quite sure what else to switch off. I edited my list a long time ago and got it working no problem, so I am not going to muck around with it. But I based it on something similar to this:
