Windows 7: Enormous Lag!

Enormous Lag!

Hello.
I have a PC which has nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti by ASUS. It is about 1 year old.
I've had graphics card driver update problems as far as I can remember (the PC is self-built).
So, yesterday I tried to update my drivers for the 100th time and I removed the nVidia drivers from Control Panel, while I ran a virus scan with VIPRE and it found 3 viruses and removed them, then I rebooted my PC and tadaa! The computer lags at desktop huuugely and I can't do almost anything. When I do. Ctrl+alt+del it gives me an error in about 30 seconds complaining about some security and that If the OS is not responding I can use ESC to shut down or use the power button.
So now I'm just sitting here on my phone with my laptop just sent to asus care center wondering why bad things happen to good people.
Any help is appreciated, thank you.
EDIT: my OS is windows 7 ultimate 64bit.

Mikkoz what computer are you posting about? GTX 560 ti and laptop confuse me. What ever computer you are having problems with you must have in your possession so we can help you.

Glad to help. With Windows sometimes the easiest solution is to just reinstall. Just make sure you keep backups!

Enormous speed variance
On my Asus Transformer tablet I was making a Macrium image to a 32GB MicoSD card. During the run I observed transfer speeds ranging from 90Mb/sec to 210Mb/sec. That is more than 100% speed variance. I have no clue why that is so - do you ?

Temp folder enormous
As I have always done, right after installator I've set c:\temp as temo and tmp folder. However, after a few days it has grown into a lot of (obviously) missable files and subfolders... Only a few (currently open) remain after pushing delete. Why aren't all these files automatically deleted...
