So the issue is that i had to install windows vista again through cd because i had some virus problem. before the virus my computer was able to run smoothly and some olds games such as wc3 and cs worked perfectly. now that i rebooted my system, these programs have serious lag issues and are not able to run smoothly anymore. i assume this has to do with my drivers no longer being what they were but after i installed the driver reviver program and updating all my drivers, the computer is still not what it was. My previous drivers were never even updated to my knowledge after i bought the device so i am puzzled as to why there is such a decrease in performance. The windows experience index numbers are the same as before so i really do not no what the issue is. is there anyway to get the drivers i had before the installation of vista back?

I dont know what this driver reviver program is-but in my experience, programs such as these usually are lousy at best case, in worst case, are often install viruses or are malware themselves. You would be best off going to the computer manufacturers website and downloading the drivers specific to your computer from their website, if it is a custom computer or you have additional parts, go to each parts manufacturers website and download the driver straight from them and install them.
