I had some spyware but I'm not sure if it was the problem. I got my computer a year ago and it seems like it's processor is a lot weaker than it was when I initially got it, it just slows down for simple things, like browsing web pages. The biggest problem right now is that I get Adobe Flash crashes, today I can't go to any forums or view and videos, and when I refresh, it crashes again (and lags my computer for like 20 seconds). Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should do to fix this? Thank you!

You mention having to reinstall Windows in the topic title, but don't mention it in the topic.  

 

Did you reinstall the operating system?

 

If you did, how did you do this, with a installation disc, system recovery partition, etc,?

Basically my computer wouldn't start up, I don't remember many details unfortunately (couldn't take a screen shot lol), so it gave me a few options and the one I picked was to start windows 8 from scratch. I know that's not much info unfortunately, but that's the best way I can describe it. No disc, I believe it was system recovery.

You can install any os on your computer but try to install any antivirus even win 8 have their own protection but it is better to use any antivirus also.
