I have a W8 computer and it's a bit slow now.


Can I do something like a system cleanup....? Whatever they may be called?

If it came with Windows 8 already installed, you could restore it to factory settings.


If you do you will lose all things added by you.


It will be in the same condition as when you bought it.


I have 8.1 Pro so the pictures may be different from 8.

Make full system images to restore to if your computer goes bonkers.

Reinstalling the operating system either by a installation disc or the system recovery partition is some what like breaking eggs with a sledgehammer for this type of problem.  It could be something much simpler to repair.  So in order to determine this more information is needed.


Please download and install Speccy to provide us with information about your computer.  Clicking on this link will automatically initiate the download. 
When Speccy opens you will see a screen similar to the one below.
Click on File which is outlined in red in the screen above, and then click on Publish Snapshot.
The following screen will appear, click on Yes.
The following screen will appear, click on Copy to Clipboard.
In your next post right click inside the Reply to Topic box, then click on Paste.  This will load a link to the Speccy log.

Please download MiniToolBox to your desktop.
Right-click on MiniToolBox.exe and select Run as Administrator.
You will see an image like the one below.
Click on the following checkboxes only:
• List last 10 Event Viewer log
• List Installed Programs
• List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
• List Minidump Files
Click on Go to start the scan.  Once it is finished highlight the text, then copy it and paste it in your topic.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
