"How do I know if I have a recovery partition on my computer"
You will see it in Disk Management, probably about 100mb.

EXACT model of your comp?

"My system is running slow"

Here are the first 2 steps, more steps will be needed, after I see the results of these logs.

Step 1: Run AdwCleaner
Author's site
Close all open programs and internet browsers.
Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
Click Scan
In the results tabs, uncheck anything you don't want to remove.
Click on Cleaning.
Confirm each time with Ok.
Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
Please Copy & Paste the contents of that logfile with your next answer.
You also can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner [C1 or later].txt as well.

Step 2: Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware ( MBAM ) Use Threat Scan.
After the Free trial, I choose this.
You then get this screen.
Deactivate Malwarebytes for Windows Premium Trial
At the end of a scan, you will get something like this.
After clicking on > View Report & then > Export. Click 'Copy to Clipboard'
Paste the contents of the clipboard into your reply.

Reboot means to restart. I think what you're asking about is a factory reset. Doing a reset may cause you to lose all your files & programs so you'd essentially be starting from scratch; is that what you want?

Your system is probably infected with malware & viruses. Johnw will walk you thru the removal process(es).

Nothing was said about error messages, the OP said the system is "slow".

If your system is running slow you can always check for viruses using Antivirus program or windows defender. Or if you think your Hard drive has gone bad, you can check its health using Hard Disk Sentinel software.
