    That is a SUPER Detailed thread!
    Maybe giving your pc specs will help greatly so we can understand what the problem is in the first place

    This sounds a bit like:
    My car engine does not start. Why??
    Please Help!!!!

    This won’t work. I can be of no assistance on Windows problems, but other people might be able to, so: Please provide some details:
    • Try to describe the kind of lag. When does it lag (starting programs, using a browser, skipping in videos…)?
    • What computer?
      • technical specs
      • If you can/want tell: What software is installed?
      • Windows version (press [Windows-key]+[R] and type “winver” in the run window)
      • running on an SSD or HDD?
    • Any processes visible with Taskmanager and/or Process Explorer that use a lot of CPU and/or the HDD/SSD?
    • What does SMART say about your storage medium if applicable? (CrystalDiskInfo is a quite good choice for Windows if I remember correctly)
    • Since when does the problem occur? Do you know what you did right before?
    • Did you run a storage benchmark?
      • Do not do this on a HDD which contains data which is not yet backed up! I have seen (failing) HDDs completely die when running heavy load applications like CrystalDiskMark.
    • Any indication of malware? Did you run a malware scan from:
      • within the Windows system
      • with another OS (live Linux with anti-malware software)
