So I have been through the usual steps when fixing my PC (storage, virus, defragment, etc.) but its not working. Files, task manager, settings, and things of that sort take so much to open. I have no clue what is causing the problem, but a friend says that its windows 10. Is he correct?

You could take a shot at refreshing or resetting your PC.

I cant seem to find a refresh to my computer, but I did find a reset. Though I do not want to loose any files. Is there any other ways to fix this besides those 2 things.

Download CCleaner, and clean it up.  Also run Malwarebytes Anti-malware.

Is this an upgrade on top of an existing earlier Windows OS or is it a clean installation?

 

If it is an updgrade I would advice you to get an ISO with the Media Creation Tool, backup your data, and install from scratch.

Okay so I fixed it just enough that I have it working for the first 10 minutes. Though after a bit I cant open files and things of that sort. What I did was cut off some of the automatic start ups. Though this only buys me time, and not a lot. How do I revert it back to how it was without a complete reset. Also the PC was working fine until a week before I made this post. That span of time is about a couple of months. So its a relatively newish computer. Could I have overloaded some hardware using nothing but google steam and some video making software (bandicam and audacity)
