​Hello, I've been using my desktop to stream myself playing a video game (Hearthstone) for 6 months. In the last 2 months my computer has started slowing down the longer it is being used. This coincides with 2 possible events: I reinstalled windows and then a few days later I physically moved the computer to a new apartment. Since then I have tried a number of different checklists I've found on the internet and gotten nowhere. In another thread on this site I saw dmccoyks' list and here are the resulting links:


​​Step 1. Speccyâ€



​​Step 2. Command Prompt Stuff
