    PC possible fix?

    So recently my PC started running really slow.... I tried doing system restore but I have no restore points... How can i restore my PC and keep Windows 7?

    Edit: It is not my CPU or RAM or anything else, since everything is for gaming and I don't have problems with it.

    It sounds like you installed Windows 7 from a third party source?

    Hmm. Check Task Manager -> processes -> all processes and tell me the processes with a high rate.

    Try running CCCleaner and Malware Bytes (free, but free premium codes here: https://www.mpgh.net/forum/2-general/...yts-codes.html ) because you might have a virus

    If it was me i'd just download a new Windows 7 and re-install...

    Other than that read KamielFTW's comment.

    If not, do what Lehsyrus says...

    Isn't there a restore point that sets it back to factory setting? You could look for that.

    What you really need to do is download 3 different registry cleaners with bonus adware, run them all at once, see how each gives you different results then buy them all in order to clean your registry. Then do the same with an AV. Once you have every adware known to man proceed to format your HDD and invest in a clean install.

    The only things that have high memory are firefox, avast (20k) and games. That is pretty much it. And Sapphire Trix is about 10k. I am just trying to restore it to when I just got it, i.e. still keep windows 7.

    Backup any important files onto multiple or a hard drive/disk(s).
    Restore to factory default
    Download Windows 7 from the CD.
