I have two Macs running El Capitan, which is old enough (2008 iMac) and am not at all have this problem. If you look through these forums, you will find that many of the slow running issues have been resolved simply by getting rid of the 3rd party anti virus and Mac apps from cleaning. Here, the consensus seems to be that these applications are useless on Macs and slow them down at best and are downright harmful in the worst case. I have none of them on any of my Macs and you have never run in the problems of virus or malware from OS X launch back to 1999. My advice would be to uninstall everything these programs from your Mac and see if that helps. And don't bother to re install later. You do not claim them, particularly the so-called cleaners. OS X does this work by himself.
