If i just say screw it and reset to factory defaults, will that fix it? Im about to just up and sell this thing and buy a new one.

You can reset to defaults but that is still an inferior install. After running Recovery I would Clean Up Factory Bloatware
to try to regain some performance lost to the bloatware.

Too bad you couldn't install TeamViewer because I had time tonight to go over your install and would most likely have discovered the problem.

If the problem isn't hardware then resetting to factory condition should make it better. But factory recovery can fail, which is why I would have a backup plan to do a Clean Reinstall Windows 7.

I didn't see that you had any bad infection, if Malwarebytes found nothing and SAS only found tracking cookies. It's more likely a corrupted factory install that needs to be reset. Even better would be to do the Clean Reinstall for best performance.

How old your PC is has little bearing on performance. What matters is that it has a perfect install that is well maintained, which is what you'll have if you do the Clean Reinstall Windows 7.
