Hi, I have recently done a factory reset on my computer due to lag in a game that I use to never lag. I went into the windows 8 settings and went under update and recovery and after it was done my computer was unbelievably slow, I have updated everything and I have done a full virus/malware scan with Malwarebytes pro and Avast. I tried SFC SCANNOW in CMD, uninstalled boatware, checked startup, cleans, defragment and I contacted Windows and I have to pay $90 for a one time use software thing which I don't have the money for at the moment. I even got agents from Windows to remotely control my PC but they all told me I have to buy this software for a "guaranteed" fix. Any help will be very appreciated :)

Well if that's the case you might have a bad hard drive Try to run HDD diagnostics http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/seatools/

If you already did 3 restores, and scanned for viruses and nothing, chances are you are having hardware failures..
