I have a problem and it is such that I have no real idea what is causing it,
Around april 10th something happened to my laptop that caused things to slow down alot(as in alot alot). My browser (Opera) slowed down, audacity slowed down, and the system itself slowed down. I tried a game (minecraft) and it was too laggy to do anything.
But the program most affected is Hitfilm Express. What used to take 45-60min in rendering all of a sudden takes 3,5-4,5 hours! It is the same recordings, the same sound, the same effects - everything (I use the same template (.hfp file) and just subsitute the old parts with the new)
The only thing I noticed happening was that my computer said "update & shut down" and when I startet it up it again the next day it was slow.
The updates was: one for windows 10, and one for Adobe flash player.
I have been in contact with several Microsoft employees that rummaged through my computer without coming up with any solutions, and they all swear that it couldn't possible be the win10 update. (I am of course suspecious of this, because when has a multi billion dollar company ever admitted fault).
So my questions/plead is:
1) Could an Adobe FLash PLayer update cause all of this?
2) Are microsoft probably lying to me and it is really their update that is at fault?
if not 1) or 2):
3) Do you have any idea what could cause this and how to undo it?
I really hope someone can help me out!
-Thanks for reading!
