Windows 7: Computer has started to lag as of today.

06 May 2015   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Computer has started to lag as of today.


So today I have noticed my computer has started to lag. Some programs load and run slower than usual. Games run quite a bit choppier. I tried virus scanning and that didn't help. Cleaned up registry with CCleaner but nothing. I'm worried the lag will get worse and I won't be able to use the computer much. I've had this problem before and was told to get Windows re-installed. I'm not sure what to do to fix this problem.

Sorry if I have posted this in the wrong section, not sure where it's supposed to go. If it's wrong, move it.

Use Clean boot,
Click Start and type in the search box,
Click on the suggestion on top or hit the Enter key,
Go to the Startup section and take some screen shots for a complete list,
Go to the Services section and on the bottom left Check the box to Hide All Microsoft services,
Repeat the screen shots,

Okay so for the applications under Startup I asked for help a friend before this and he told me to turn off most of them, as I had like 20 enabled

Anyways, here's all the screenshots of everything. Hopefully a way to fix this issue can be found...
