Seems I cannot update my windows anymore. Would anyone have some tips that are better than theses?

Also I have extremely slow startups. Sometimes it takes 10 minutes where the computer is just frozen at loading screen or desktop where no icons will load and i cannot click on anything.

Any advice would help.

So only run it on SATA or IDE drives...
