Hello, I followed the old tutorial (where I had to mess around with the privacy settings, etc.) Should I use that restore point that I made, or just factory reset, or any "reset" that is more effective? So that I can follow this guide again.
Did the first one on Win 10, now I am on Win 11.
PS. I havent seen any issues with my last optimization except a sort of glitch/error where I experience slowed (more like laggy) animation whether Im browsing or gaming paired with a loud screeching sound. Other than that no noticeable errors I have experienced.
Sometimes a simple system restore will fix the issue..
Try windows x
click on power shell admin or command prompt admin
chose an earlier date on which your computer was working fine
click on next, finish, yes
It will restore your computer to an earlier date
if you get an message - system restore not completed - click on close
It will show you all the icons..
Try and check whether it is working now ..
If it is still not working then we have to do a refresh and reset
If you would like to do a refresh and reset follow the steps given below
click on start - settings - update and security - recovery - reset this pc - get started
on start - type here to search - type reset this pc - click on reset this pc on the top - click on get started
It will show you keep my files and remove everything
chose keep my files
chose the account - type the password - click on local reinstall - click on reset
It will be in progress..
login to computer and start using the computer.
If it is still not working
chose remove everything
click on local reinstall - just remove my files - click on reset
It will be in progress
If you do refresh ( keep my files ) - all your personal files like pictures, music , documents , videos will still be intact. Only the applications will be lost
If you do reset ( remove everything ) - you are doing a factory default. It will become like a day one computer. It will wipe out everything and take your computer to day one like a new computer.
You can also do the recovery in an alternative way..
There are two alt keys on the keyboard. If you look at the bottom row of keyboard you can see the one on the left side of space bar and the other on the right side of space bar. The alt key on the right side will be looking like alt, alt gr or alt car. Turn off the computer. Hold the alt key on the left and tap f10 continuously. It will go to repair mode. It will show you chose an option, continue, troubleshoot. If it is not going to repair mode, turn off the computer. Turn on the computer. Hold the right alt key ( alt gr or alt car or alt ) and then tap f10 continuously. It will go to chose an option continue and troubleshoot..
It will show you chose an option, continue, troubleshoot
Go to troubleshoot - click on reset this pc
click on keep my files ( only applications will be lost ) chose your account and type your password - click on local reinstall - click on reset
It will be in progress
If the keep my files option is not working
Go to troubleshoot - click on reset this pc – click on remove everything – click on local reinstall – just remove my files – click on reset
It will reinstall windows.
If the just remove my files is not working..
Go to troubleshoot - click on reset this pc – click on remove everything – click on local reinstall – Fully clean the drive – click on reset
Note: You can also go to chose an option , continue , troubleshoot by holding the alt key + tapping f10 or alt gr + tapping f10 on the keyboard while turning on the computer. Once you see the troubleshoot option, you can stop tapping the f10 and stop holding the alt key. Then you can try the keep my files and remove everything ( just remove by files and fully clean the drive ) by following the steps which was mentioned above.

Click on "Yes" if it answers your question.
Is it better to do a local install since I upgraded from Windows 10 or should I use the Cloud Download option (Im also connected via ethernet connection if it is relevant)? And does Cloud download install does basically the same of fresh install using usb?
Please use local reinstall intead of cloud download. It is one of the best option. It doesnt require the internet connection.
Follow step number 12 and 13 to fix your stutters because I think you are getting because of standby memory.
However better to follow all steps for best results
