First, you need to discover why it is 'extremely slow'.
Does it actually need a 'reformat'?

But a "reformat" would include drivers, applications...basically starting from zero.

"Formatting" means losing all the data. If you want to do fresh install, you will need a place to get drivers.
You can't have both - reformat, and "not to reinstall".

As my sig picture says:
"Identify the problem before applying a solution"

What seems to be the problem?

That is almost impossible, and probably won't fix the still unidentified problem.

The problem with it is it takes extremely long to start and shut down....it take around 30 minutes to start and shut down..... and while loading apps in the pc...it take 10 minutes for normal Counter Strike Global Offensive to load and takes also around 10 minutes just to load microsoft Word and others.....After loading CS:GO, it still lags soo much ( even while playing and the fps is constant around 10 with lowest settings ) while the requirement for the game is soo much lower than the specs needed to play the game.....

1. Specs of this device.

2. A full wipe and reinstall of everything is probably needed. There is almost certainly too much junk running.
How the virus/malware situation?

I still think you just need to do a full wipe and reinstall of everything.

Assuming you have the license key, you can download the Windows 7 ISO file here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windo...

Use that with this, to create your own USB install media:
Rufus

Of course, you'll also need to get all the drivers for it, and also reinstall all your applications.


This is assuming there is no hardware fault with it.
