I just bought:
2016 ASUS VivoBook Flagship Model 15.6" Laptop - Intel Pentium N3700 Quad core (2M Cache, up to 2.4 GHz), 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD 5400 RPM, SuperMulti DVD/
It is slow but I think because of alllllll the windows updates. Came w Mcafee. Any suggestions other than using another antivirus?

This is a pretty low end laptop. So it's a little limited to improve the performance. First, replace the HDD with a SSD. The laptop will boot up faster, programs will load a little faster and feel a little snappier. Second, add another 4GB of RAM. I'm not sure if this is possible or not, because you didn't provide the exact model number.
