    Windows slows down comparing when it was fresh installation


    Hi

    I am using windows 10 64 bit

    I donít know if I should believe myth that says do a fresh windows installation every 4 or 5 years as it gets clogged and I feel windows slows down comparing when it was fresh installation

    Although I use utility Revo Uninstaller (there are others) that is supposed not to leave a leftover in windows registry when you uninstall a program

    I do not let unnecessary program to run in the background

    Code:

    Only I have ESET and MalwareBytes running when windows start

    In past I used many utilities that check and tweak windows OS but it didnít restore windows to its origin state when it was freshly installed

    Is this true myth

    Is there a trust program that check windows 10 health and advise accordingly ?

    Am I missing some important steps?

    What are most trusted programs worth to have / buy it ?

    Thx

    MS tools themselves are the best:

    If these fail to bring back performance then you run file system and disk checker utilities.

    I first suggest using Autoruns to check what third party stuff is loading at boot. Disable stuff you probably don't need and recheck performance then consider uninstalling the stuff not needed. Also check your drives are defragged / trimmed and run Diskclean.

    Although I run msconfig --> Startup
    Are you referring to Autorun in the link below that might reveal something msconfig won't show ?

    Will do so

    Also check your drives are defragged / trimmed and run Diskclean.
    Will do so

    consider uninstalling the stuff not needed.
    If programs installed on hard drive and not running in the background and not starting with windows are they still slow down PC ?

    There may still be a related service running even if the program is not running. Such services can be disabled in Autoruns.
