Hello folks! First time poster here. 

 

I'll try to make a long story short: I bought my laptop in March, on a tight budget, and was assisted by some long-gone tech-head who kept the laptop after purchase for a day and gave it back to me "upgraded". 

I understand that he might have installed different drivers that improved the functionality of the system as a whole.

 

And indeed, after "resetting" my laptop because of some deeply-entrenched virus, I now find myself with a pc as good, and as slow, as new. 

I can't get help from my friend anymore, so I'm wondering if anyone here can help me out, and give me some advice and paths to explore in order to improve my computer?

 

One example of something gone wrong is that playing Civ V used to be a lot more fluid, and now it's borderline laggy. 

 

I'm currently downloading GeForce experience and will see if this helps at all. 

 

So I guess what I'm asking is if anyone knows of any minor tweaks I can operate as a complete newbie, or programs worthwhile downloading, or anything really, please let me know :) 

Thank you lots

You need to place checks in all of the boxes requested in the MiniToolBox.  What you have posted is useless.


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

Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:
 
Why you should not use Registry Cleaners and Optimization Tools
 
There are numerous programs which purport to improve system performance, make repairs and tune up a computer. Many of them include such features as a registry cleaner, registry optimizer, disk optimizer, etc. Some of these programs even incorporate optimization and registry cleaning features alongside anti-malware capabilities. These registry cleaners and optimizers claim to speed up your computer by finding and removing orphaned and corrupt registry entries that are responsible for slowing down system performance. There is no statistical evidence to back such claims. Advertisements to do so are borderline scams intended to goad users into using an unnecessary and potential dangerous product.
 
Credit for this goes to Quietman7, one of our Global Moderators.

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

Looking at the programs installed it looks like you are running a pretty lean computer.  I don't see a lot of bloatware in the list either.  The only program I saw that concerns me is the Bit Torrent.  Downloading P2P files is one of the fastest way I know of to become infected.  The problem it that you have no way of knowing if the files you are downloading are infected or not.  The person providing the files may not even be aware that they are infected.

 

FreeBooter provided a very comprehensive list of ways to reduce items which could slow down your computer.  I would suggest reading through this list. 


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