I have the i5 (4460) processor. My PC is running slow very often. Is it possible that the 4th generation processors are just too old to run Windows 10 properly?

I have checked already every possible cause for the "slow-down". Nothing is over loaded. Not the RAM (8GB), not hard disk space (about half full only), and CPU usage is under 50% also. So I think it could solve the problem to return to windows 7 maybe? Thanks alot for HELP! :)

First, you are in the wrong forum.

 

No, there are plenty of 4th gen processors running Windows 10, and running it well. I have several, including a 3rd gen processor.

 

A good place to solve windows issues is on the Microsoft forum.

​Hello, @AJauc​:

 

Thank you for contacting Intel Embedded Community.

 

Could you please clarify if the affected device has been designed by you or a third-party company? In case that it is a third-party unit, please give the model, part number, and where is stated the information related to it.

 

waiting for your answer.

 

Best regards,
