    Reboot

    My 5 year old pc seems to be taking ages to respond to input and freezing a lot and am unable to run programs like base amp which I have installed . I have done a recovery to a certain date but still the same . I assume it has some viruses on it ,so if I do a factory reboot will this clear the viruses and return to the original settings .

    If your doing the restore from the hidden partition there should be an option to format the windows partition before the reinstall,t his will however mean you loose any files and programs you have installed so back up before hand. It may not be a virus sometimes windows and other program updates cause the system to act unresponsive at times and can get it in a muddle.

    Id suggest stopping all programs that fire up at windows start and see if that helps diagnose the issue a tad before taking the plunge.Which operating system version are you using?

    Which anti virus and other tools do you have installed ,you could try the free version of malwarebytes anti malware for a system clean?

    Down load the program in the link below, and uninstall most of the programs on windows 10 that you installed lately, and can reinstall again later, and see if this speeds up the computer, also are you not running low on hard disk space by any chance, imagining you have you hard disks partitioned.
