We have a Dell Latitude E6510... It has an I7 processor @ 2.0 Ghz , 8 GB of DDR3 RAM , 256 GB SSD Samsung

Basically I reformatted the computer for a new user and the employee complained about the computer running slowly. I did notice this but after spending a lot of time working on the computer I have ran out of Ideas.

Things I tried

-Ran a virus scan
-Checked Backround processes
-Ran Hardware tests which were all sucessful.
-Updated Drivers on the computer
-Made Sure TRIM was enabled
Disabled unnecessary OS features
-Disabled Paging
-Turned off defrag (SSD do not need to defrag)

Can anyone else think of something that I might be missing?

what OS ?
also - check in the bios if it is set to AHCI, and check if your sata channel setup is set to DMA (it is often PIO by default)
then check in device manager how your sata channels are setup PIO?  DMA  enabled
