This is what inevitably happens to every computer running the Microsoft Windows
family of operating systems. Once your computer has been running for a while, the registry
and filesystem gets so full of useless junk from old programs and bloatware
, that it slows the whole system down. After you've defragged a million times and cleaned up everything imaginable, you still can't get your computer back to the way it was when you first installed Windows. The only cure is to reinstall a fresh copy of the operating system. That will keep you going for at least another 3 months.
Man, my system is so winrotted, I can't do a damn thing with it.
My computer has winrot so bad, even Doom won't run on it!

My nephew only used my computer for 10 minutes, but once he was done the winrot was so bad I had to reinstall Windows.
