Hey Mike -

The Factory Install is one of the worst installs of Windows one can have, larded with corrupting bloatware and duplicate utilities that interfere with better versions built into Windows.  This is why most tech enthusiasts won't run the factory install but prefer to Clean Install Windows 10 which is the very best install of Windows one can have.

Until then you can reclaim some performance lost to the factory install by going over the Windows 10 Performance and Install Integrity Checklist - Microsoft Community  to check it's set up correctly, optimized for best performance and any needed repairs get done. 

An alternative to the Clean install is to do a Reset Your Windows 10 PC choosing to save only files which removes the crippling bloatware and comes close to a Clean install although it doesn't clear the drive.  But the Recovery partition will still run if ever needed.
