That I5 processor isn't super fast, but fast enough. The Passmark score for it is 2501.
random read 1.8 mbs
This is probably the cause of the slowness. Most likely the drive is slowing down because of age. There isn't anything you can do to fix it. A properly working HDD should show in the range of 3Mbps to 5Mbps.
As for the Windows version, what I was looking for was the 4 digit version number. If Windows 10 is not at version 2004, Windows Update will be working in the background to download and install updates. This can greatly reduce performance.
BTW, you can't paste pictures into a PCQ&A post. You have to save them to a file, then attach them when you are composing your post.
