I don't know what is wrong with your computer. I can tell you what I do to clean up my computer after a reformate.

1. Download Revo Uninstaller and run.

It will display all of the programs installed on the computer. Typically, there is a substantial amount of bloatware that can be removed. Remove the junk. Run the Junk File scanner and delete the junk.

2. Download Glary Utility and run 1-click scan. Repair.

3. Glary Utility has a Registry defrager. Run and defrag the registry.

4. Run Windows Disk drive degramentor.

This does take some time but usually results in a well running computer.

Best of luck!

Done. Same as usual. Not sure why this is happening. :/ is there some other log I could possibly take and upload to check something else? this is not normal on a 12gb ram 2.2ghz i7 and a 3gb video setup. It just wasn't that way before the reformat. :(

Hello,

I would make sure all your chipset and video card drivers are up to date and working properly, also try to start in safe mode and see if the slowness occurs. To start in safe mode simply restart the computer and before the windows boot screen tap F8 if my memory serves, then select boot safe mode with networking. :)

<<2. Download Glary Utility and run 1-click scan. Repair.>>

Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:
  • Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

    The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.
  • Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.
  • Not all registry cleaners create a backup of the registry before making changes. If the changes prevent the system from booting up, then there is no backup available to restore it in order to regain functionality. A backup of the registry is essential BEFORE making any changes to the registry.
  • Improperly removing registry entries can hamper malware disinfection and make the removal process more difficult if your computer becomes infected. For example, removing malware related registry entries before the infection is properly identified can contribute to system instability and even make the malware undetectable to removal tools.
  • The usefulness of cleaning the registry is highly overrated and can be dangerous. In most cases, using a cleaner to remove obsolete, invalid, and erroneous entries does not affect system performance but it can result in "unpredictable results".

Unless you have a particular problem that requires a registry edit to correct it, I would suggest you leave the registry alone. Using registry cleaning tools unnecessarily or incorrectly could lead to disastrous effects on your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. For routine use, the benefits to your computer are negligible while the potential risks are great.Louis

Louis,

Thanks for that information.
