ASUS Laptop Runs Very Slow Windows 10

"Hello, all. I bought a brand new ASUS laptop and it was working perfectly for about 2 weeks. I have installed numerous games and an antivirus. It was always running fine. I have made no changes recently and barely any browsing. While playing football manager, after about 30 mins, the laptop froze for perhaps a minute before seemingly working normally again.

Now it seems to intermittently go very slow and unresponsive. The laptop is almost unusable. How can I solve this slow performance ASUS laptop with Windows 10 OS? Thanks in advance."

Why Is ASUS Laptop Slow, Unresponsive or Freezing

Is your ASUS laptop running slow on Windows 10? Does it keep freezing when you surf the Internet or work on a project? All laptops run slow over time, an ASUS is no exception.
