Hi Windows 10 support fourm :)
I was directed here from the malware removal fourms to get assistance since my computer was clean, I have been having lag spikes in games, mainly steam based (CS:GO and TF2) and in all browsers, if anyone has a idea on how to fix this it will be greatly appreciated :)
Also I do use a cooling pad so I do jot believe it could be due to overheating.

Did this issue occur before in Windows 7/8/8.1?

I ask because Windows 10 drivers are new, and are full of problems. A lot of people are complaining about lag spikes or generally low framerate in games in Windows 10. 

 

What laptop is this? What GPU does it have? Do you have the latest Windows 10 drivers for the GPU installed?

This may bring some light to your issue - Windows 10 Lagging

Pay close attention to items 7 thru 11. This will tell you about your internet spikes and how to solve them for the most part.


People who don't know what they are talking about will provide arguments instead of any valid proof to their claims...

In addition to Randem's excellent suggestions, I also make these:

 

Otherwise this tends to look similar to many other problems that we've seen with W10 being installed on well-used systems.

There's a couple of things to try:
1)  Run the following command in a Powershell window that's run as an Administrator in order to re-register the Windows Store apps:

Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
From this article:  http://www.thewindowsclub.com/re-register-windows-store-apps
Be sure that Edge is closed (in Task Manager).  Cortana will spit an error as it's still running - don't worry about that for now.

2)  Uninstall your antivirus, then use the removal tool for it (there's a list of most of them here:  http://www.carrona.org/avuninst.html ), then install a freshly downloaded, W10 compatible version.  Some A/V have difficulties with the upgrade, so removing them and then reinstalling them will help how they run.

3)  Download fresh copies of the latest, W10 compatible audio and video drivers for your system.  Then uninstall the current versions from your system.  Then install the freshly downloaded versions.

4)  Get ALL available Windows Updates

5)  Get ALL available, W10 compatible drivers/programs from the manufacturer's website.  If some aren't compatible w/W10, check here about uninstalling them.

6)  Get ALL available, W10 compatible drivers/programs for any add-on hardware and any software that you installed previously.  If they aren't compatible, please uninstall them.

If this doesn't fix things, then post back so we can discuss the following options:
- continuing to attempt to fix this copy of the OS
- Reset of the OS (considering both the "Keep My Files" and the "Remove Everything" options)
- revert to the previous OS
- revert to the previous OS with another attempt at installing W10 (I don't recommend this)
- clean install of the previous OS
- clean install of the previous OS, then update to W10
- W10 clean install

 

Finally, right after you have problems, please generate this report:

 

Please do the following:
- open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog)
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on Administrative Events
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx
- zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
- upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).

OK, I presume that this is an OEM computer - like a Dell or an HP

The first thing to try would be to see if you have a recovery partition, and if you can boot to it in order to see if it works.

To help with this I'll need to know the make and model of the system and what operating system came on it originally.

Also, how long has W10 been installed for?

 

Have you activated W10 on Microsoft's servers (check in the Settings...Update and Security...Activation to see if it's activated)?

If so, you can clean install W10 from a USB drive:  http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/media-creation-tool-install

Be sure to be connected to the internet, then skip the first time it asks for a product key, and tell it "not now" the second time it asks for a product key.

Once the installation finishes check to be sure that it's activated.

If it's been over a month you cannot go back to the previous OS.

But you can use recovery media to reinstall Windows "clean" (this'll wipe everything out).
Or, you can install W10 "clean" and then let it activate automatically (skip the first prompt for a product key, and tell the second prompt to wait until later, then it should activate automatically).

Which steps did you perform when you say you updated the system?

Did you do all of the things that I suggested?

Step 1 is actually one of the most important steps.

 

You can use Process Monitor to view the startup and see if you can isolate the problem area(s).

Warning tho' - the logs are huge and it takes a bit of knowledge to find things using the filters (I'm not real skilled at this).

It's free from here:  https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb896645.aspx

 

Here's an article on how the author did a startup trace:  http://blogs.technet.com/b/markrussinovich/archive/2012/07/02/3506849.aspx

Beware - if left running, the log can quickly fill up your hard drive.  Be sure to stop the scan as soon as you've finished the boot trace.
