    Windows 8 slow after recovery


    hello

    my problem is that my windows crashed last sunday morning and failed to boot up
    i ran the recovery with the original install disc witch worked fine, first i thought everything was ok but noticing that the 98 windows updates took forever to download app. 1gb took me 2 hours with a 100/100 fiberglas line
    after the updates i defragged my c: drive witch took 11 phases but was ok after that but not speeding up the pc at all
    the worst part i notice is the hard fps drop on games and the fluctuation of my inet speed

    would you recommend a clean install from scratch?

    No, just wait a day or so. When you restore (or clean install) all indexes are built again and various other one-off jobs are running.

    You'd probably have the same issue if you did clean install.

    Do update if it doesn't improve though. In my experience things work better after the second day....
