Free diagnostics tool in Windows 10

There is a useful Resource and Performance Monitor included in Windows 10.

Click on the Windows key and type perfmon /report (keep the space between perfmon and the slash) and press Enter.

A box pops up with System Diagnostic and says "Generate a report detailing the status of local hardware resources, system response times, and processes on the local computer along with system information and configuration data. This report includes suggestions for ways to maximize performance and streamline system operation. Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, is the minimum required to run this Data Collector Set."

Report Status

It will collect data for 60 seconds and then reports on Errors, Warnings, Basic System Checks and Resource Overview. There are then more reports for Software Config, Hardware Config, CPU, Network, Disk, Memory and Report Statistics with Computer Information (# of CPUs, Windows build, etc.)

You can then print, e-mail or save the report. A good diagnostic tool to be aware of.  And free
