Last night we update our Windows 10 version 1511 to Windows Anniversary Update  1607.  This morning we have had the most horrible experience ever in Windows; the PC is super slow.  So slow that a click to the next click takes 5 to 10 seconds to display whatever results we are clicking.

Help!!!! Please an EE with some experience in this can assist us!

Thanx in advance!

Start in safe mode and report whether it is again slow.

We have seen similar problems and the cause was the installed Antivirus Software. Is the vendor of your Antivirus supporting the Anniversary Update 1607?

The antivirus is from Comodo.

Suggest:  Download a copy of the freeware Microsoft Process Explorer.  See what process is using all the CPU.  You can drill down to the specific process.  Once you know what the process is, it will be easier to figure out what is going on.

Can't right now.  Did as suggested and ran safe mode but the notebook doesn't start.  It stays in the Toshiba logo.  We have turned off and on but nothing.  Help!

Switching to safe mode cannot be the reason why it stays at the Toshiba logo screen.
Pretty sure the reason is hardware related. Please check your hard drive for errors using the tools of the respective manufacturer.

Yes, we also think it's not related.

We have turned it off/on various time and no luck.  Ok, we will start check how to see what happened.

Check the hard drive or simply remove the hard drive and see if it goes past the Toshiba screen, then.

We took out the battery and it's booted to a message about "restar" or "repair options".  We choose restart and did the same; stood in the toshiba logo.

We will keep trying.

This could be sign of a imminent hard disk failure: files failing to write to disk, files unable to open, slower access times, slow boot times.

Try removing the hard disk and fit a spare one. Does it improve the situation?

We have tried:

- removing all input connecting
- removing and reseating of the battery
- press hold power long time
- power on press f2 rapidly (we can get into cmos)
- removing and reseating the memory
- removing and reseating the hard drive

These came from different searches.

And in some cases we get the screen,

Recover
If we click advance option we get
