Wow, some post in Malware, went through a lot there. Number of possibilities for a slow Laptop or PC.
Now slow to boot or and also slow in general when already booted using programs ?
1. too many startup programs, at run type MSCONFIG, select startup tab see what is starting with laptop
2. fragmented drive, defrag the drive in properties of drive in my computer, tools tab.
3. Low disk space, use disk cleanup, clean all history, right click drive in my computer, select properties, disk cleanup.
4.upgrade RAM sometimes not enough
5. Some anti-viruses use a lot resources along with what else is running, again in MSCONFIG in services tab
After doing what you did, should run a chkdsk. At start menu slect command prompt, right click and select Run as Administrator :
from a Admin command prompt, copy and paste this in chkdsk c: /f /r
take some time to run, hour to a few.
After that from same Run as Administator command prompt, copy and paste this in
dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
Again at a Run as Adimistrator command prompt then copy and paste this in sfc /scannow
