If you simply don't care about any of the data on your system then you might be able to return the system to an as bought state.

Each company offers some way to do that. Some make you create disks, some have an F key at boot and others may have you purchase the media. See owners manual.

If you have data then consider using the backup feature of windows 7 to a usb hard drive.

When you get the system restored, make a standard user account and only use it. Have a strong password on the admin account. Get a good security suite and apply all updates to avoid this in the future.

Hang up and live.

It's either overheating, infected, or you installed all sorts of garbage that's slowing it down. Since it has Win7 Starter, is it a laptop? or a netbook?

It has to be a netbook with the specs. Let us know the make and model of the netbook and we'll let you know how to restore it, if it has a restore partition.

1. I would install malwarebytes and boot in safe mode and run malwarebytes.
2. Run a full system anti Virus scan
3. I would download Glary Utilites and run that.
4 . Defrag the hard drive.
5 See if you could add more Ram.
