Windows 7: How do I prevent my computer getting slower with age?

Windows 7

Thank you. The machine is about 2 years old. It runs like a clock - but sfc still reports hundreds of corrupt system files. I don't understand it either.

So just re install windows.

I couldn`t stand 1 corrupt file, let alone 400, there`s no reason for that.

Too many apps, settings, data, etc.

It would take me a year to reconstruct my setup. That's why I'm trying to avoid a clean install.

Well I think we know where all those problems came from. You have been doing a little to much reconstructing.

This tutorial might suite your needs.
