I have recently had the hard drive formatted and a Windows 7 o.s.installed on my desktop by a local computer shop in an attempt to speed up my system,this has not helped at all as system is still very slow,despite specs appearing to be considerably less on my laptop it is much quicker,could the system be slow due to an illegal o.s.?

To answer your question...of course, it could.  It could be slow to any number of system issues, including malware or damaged files.


Is this your way of telling us that you have an illegal install of Windows...and suspect that it's causing you system problems?
