Hi, recently I had a problem with my Spotify that I downloaded from the Microsoft store. And when I told my friend, he advised that I went into file explorer and reveal my hidden folder. After that I think I had deleted the wrong file and my Microsoft store stopped working. After searching for a few days for a fix, I found that I had to reinstall windows from https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/software-download/windows10 under the "Download Tool Now" section. Then after I so , it had fixed my Microsoft Store issue but then I noticed that my laptop was running noticeably slower. At first I thought it was because my laptop was not up to date so I used the same link , (https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/software-download/windows10) , but under the "Update Now" section. But even after that, my laptop was still slow. I tried many things , such as updating it, downloading all the drivers from https://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/support-product/7572?b=1&pn=NH.Q3MSG.001&sn=90904707134, and factory restoring the laptop but none worked. The laptop now takes 5 seconds to open a Google Chrome tab, runs 30-40fps on League of Legends(usually around 120fps) and around 15fps on Apex Legends with the lowest graphics(usually around 60-70fps). I have been trying to fix this problem for the past few days and this is my last resort and I can't even get it fix from Courts[where I bought the laptop] as my warranty is over. If anyone has any fixes , please help Thanks.
