Hi greengrass ,
That is one hell of an open-ended question and you will have to work through many options to isolate the problem.
If you are using windows 10 it will download updates (supposedly in the background) but I find the computer can become unresponsive while this is happening. A slow internet connection will make things even worse.
What is your broadband speed?

Hi Stoneboy Greengrass back should have put in the operating system didn't think at the time.

Yep it windows 7 haven a clue about B.B speed my son got that and he's not here, away working, have to wait for his arrival. Most likely as you say the net could also be some of the crap on the computer will have to start a clean up.
Thanks for response and the one you gave on the Tarmac driveway will get a few estimates for the damaged area as the rest is ok its just the first bit where the trees are one other side of the fence on left in pic.

Hi greengrass,
Search 'broadband speed' and use one of the testers to see what your speed is.
if this is say 10mb download speed then you will have to start looking at sysconfig to see what you have running in the background.
