Question on resetting PC

acee 0 Reputation points

Recently I've been having issues with my computer (slow performance, bsod's, etc) and I thought at first it was because of a windows update not being able to download. I switched to windows 11 and downloaded all the necessary updates and the problem still persists. After multiple full system scans, repairs, and driver updates my computer still continues to act this way. I'm now ready to reset it as there seems no other feasible way to fix it, but I'd like a second opinion.
