why is my laptop so slow to startup

Dear Tomshardware,
I'm having a lot of issues with my laptop lately, as it is running extremely slow. 2 years ago I have bought an Alienware 15 (which I still own to this date) and it was extremely fast and smooth when I got it. Then through time, it started getting a bit slower, which is fine, as I was doing a lot of work on it, so I recently re-installed Windows. A couple months after, the laptop is as slow as it's never been. The biggest issue is the startup, when the laptop starts, it can easily take about 5 minutes just to be able to use it.


If I launch a game after a fresh restart, the game takes a painful amount of time to load, even though my ping and FPS in it afterwards are completely fine. A League Of Legends game for example can take up to 10 minutes to load. That's crazy. It only does that the first time I start the game after a reboot though, the second time it takes less than a minute. The computer in general is running ultimately slow, and I'm wondering, what can I do about it?


I have an i7 processor, and Windows 10 on it, if you need any more specifications however, let me know and I'll share. I have good antivirus software installed, and it claims I have no viruses. P. S. : I've recently started with computer programming, is it possible that this is the source of the issue? I believe it shouldnt be though, as even if I use pointers wrongfully, it should be cleaned as I restart the laptop?


Also, I have up-to-date drivers. Many thanks and king regards. New Lenovo Ideapad 110 using 50% of memory after turning off all startup programs except BitDefender. Too slow.
