Hello, recently for some reason I have just lost a lot of performance in my PC and I have been using this for 2 years, my specs are 1070 ti, cpu is G4560, Motherboard is a STRIX Z270H Gaming, and 16 gb of ram. I use to be able to play fortnite at 200 frames plus no lag or frame issues and gta 5 with no issues at 100+ frames. Now I am getting 60-100 frames in fortniet, not loading in, and freezing, and freezing in gta 5. Also my download speed has went down. I honestly have no clue what to do at this point, any help would be appreciated, thanks.

First thing would be virus and malware scans.
After 2 years, a clean OS install can do wonders for performance.

I just scanned my computer using Malwarebytes and I had some detections, and after that I clean restarted my OS, I will see later if my computer is running better.

Im back, my computer is still slow for some reason, but when I scanned for any viruses or malware, I got more, and I didn't even download anything.

Hey, what about temps? Do they seem good? I ignored maintenance for some time and my temps were what reduced my performance a lot
