Why is Windows 10 so slow?

Last Modified: 2015-11-17
So I couldn't resist the "Free upgrade" to Windows 10 on my laptop.  I have a great i7 laptop that runs extremely well.

After the upgrade, things are very sluggish.  In fact, it takes around 5 minutes to start up.

Anyone else experience this?  Anything I can do?
