Very slow laptop2021-04-20T16:26:27+01:00

I have had my laptop for around 4 years

Its really show to bootup and then takes a further few minutes for things to load up. i have very limited apps on auto startup, noticed that disk usage is at 100% most the time and that the cpu fan runs alot. Im sure this wasnt the case when i first had it.
Done a couple of fixes for high disk usage but didnt resolve.(windows search disable)

Would I be better off doing the windows ‘Reset This PC’ would that wipe the pc, reinstall win 10 and start fresh ?

A few things can cause slow boot and system slowness. The first thing I look to is startup items. I also look to a full or failing hard drive . You mentioned that you have few startup items. I next look to malware.
