I am using HDD not SDD.
It slowed down the time since I swapped with a new Motherboard,as the previous one was non-functional due to some internal damage(chipset,etc...).
Previous one was: ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3
New one(changed) is: Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2R2

Windows 10 in MBR(LEGACY BIOS) setup.

I also do have Ubuntu 21.04(LEGACY BIOS) installed in a separate HDD,obviously in separate partition. That is running and functioning great,without any lags or issues.
@SaiyanGoku any other suggestions???
Also, Friend @whitestar_999 ???

HDD is your culprit. Win10 is bloated these days, so it is at fault for sure, but not much you can do other than using SSD. Even a cheap SSD is much faster than a HDD.

Can you check what is consuming your disk usage the most?
In the previous page, I had already posted process running under Task Manager.
One entry is shown using the resource VERY HIGH, i.e. .NET Runtime Optimization Services!!!

Any idea about that?

From a quick search online, it appears that .Net optimization service is a process that recompiles the .net libraries on your system. I've also read that it should only be running when your system is idle. If you think it's running while your system is active, perhaps it's some bug in Windows. Is your Windows up-to-date with the latest updates? Perhaps this could be fixed in it.

Otherwise, also try opening the resource monitor (Task Manager > Performance tab > Resource Monitor link at bottom) and check CPU, memory and disk usage. Sort the list to see which processes consume the most CPU, RAM or disk.

In my experience, system slowdowns occur either due to high disk usage or high RAM usage (which triggers paging to disk which subsequently causes high disk usage again). High CPU usage does not affect stability much unless you are running some heavy benchmarking tool.

Get ssd, this .NET Runtime Optimization Service usually runs after any windows 10 system update & on a hdd it is painfully slow. There is no way to avoid it unless you completely disable windows updates.
@Desmond Just noticed you changed your username.

Agreeably true. But my other PC-Desktop that runs Windows 10 (64-bit) Pro on another HDD,is way much faster than this PC.
The BIOS is also set to UEFI.
I saw this decrease in performance of Windows 10 only on the previous aforementioned PC-Desktop, after I had changed the motherboard.
Any take on the motherboard issue,Friend?

Maybe the changed mobo needs newer drivers/latest win 10 updates, in any case this ".net runtime optimization service" is now unavoidable on latest win 10 versions & updates so better get the ssd.

I am not sure about the speeds but is there a possibility that the exact SATA port used to connect the main HDD may not be fast?

OK. May be HDD itself is the rate limiting step in this chain then.
A typical hdd has random read write speeds of 0.7-0.9MB/s while the cheapest dram-less ssd has random read write speeds of 25-50MB/s & it is the random read speeds most often used by operating system/programs for typical tasks.
