    I know what the trim command does.
    My Test
    I had an Intel 120 with low read and write speeds so as test I defragmented the SSD twice to see what happened.
    Same issues as you are having and TRIM would not repair the SSD.
    I wiped and reformatted, fresh install and it worked OK again.

    The thing that I would be trying right now is to increase your Virtual Memory to 1.5 times your installed Ram and see if that helps. You could be running out of Virtual Memory as well.

    I have increased the virtual memory from 2176 MB to an initial size of 2176 MB and a maximum size of 12000 MB.

    Wiping, reformatting, and reinstalling is a consideration.

    Using an external drive as a precaution if the HDD is starting to fail will strongly suggest that you back up the data that you do not wish to loose.

    Like Documents for MS Office, any pictures or videos you may want so on and so forth.

    I would be cloning your OS to another Drive.
    Then wiping and Formatting the SSD, then clone back onto the SSD.
    No need to reinstall.
    Still think the SSD is the issue, not the OS.

    Sounds good. Most of my documents are already backed up to the cloud.

    I like Dougie's plan a lot.
    As I understand it, I'll need to buy a external hard drive for this, or possibly a large flashdrive. Then I find software for cloning, and store an image on the external drive. Then I find software for wiping and reformatting (probably loaded onto a bootable USB), reset my SDD, then load the image back onto it.

    You can put the clone on any other Hard drive you have. Just make a partition. First partition on HDD.
    Can be on an internal HDD.
    I use this cloning free software.

    Test the clone before wiping your SSD to make sure the clone boots.
    Then wipe the SSD and format.
    Then move the clone back to the SSD.

    I'll get around to reformatting the hard drive hopefully this weekend.

    Thanks to everyone for helping me get to the bottom of this.
