Windows 11 freezes when using "Run as administrator", General Performance issues

Hello Everyone

I am experiencing some performance issues since I updated to Windows 11. Games are lagging sometimes pretty badly (even ones that do not have that high of a system requirement) sporadically and when I run a Youtube Video and a game at the same time, my Machine freezes for about 30 seconds if I run something as an Administrator. I also here a beeping sound on my Headphones until I can do something.

My Setup:

Gigabyte Aorus Nvidia RTX 3080
32 GB of RAM
AMD Ryzen 7 2700X @ 3.7 GHz
ASUS ROG STrix X570-E Gaming Motherboard
1st SD: Samsung Evo 500GB M2 SSD
2nd HDD: Seagate Barracude 4TB (yeah It's not super fast, but I did not have the issue with Windows 10).

I already did the following steps:

  1. My Hard drive's are more than 25% free
  2. I run a SFC scan, it found some stuff, but it did not help
  3. Updated my Graphic Card Drivers, did not help
  4. Run Windows Updates, did not help
  5. DISM.exe /Online etc. did not help
  6. Chkdsk could not find anything
  7. Memory diagnostics could not find anything
  8. Did a disk cleanup, did not help

The only thing I can think of is to re-install Windows 11...but do you guys may have another Idea?

Thank you for your Help.

Kind regards,

Gabe

    Open administrative command prompt and type or copy and paste:

    DISM /Online /Get-OSUninstallWindow

    If Error 1168, Element not found is seen then the previous version was deleted (beyond the default or modified roll back period)

    If there was no error code then you can modify the roll back up to 60 days.

    DISM /Online /Set-OSUninstallWindow /Value:60

    Logs could be collected to see if there were any major problems reported.

    Once the default windows.old has been deleted the easy method to return to disappears.

    Options to return to Windows 10 included:
    a) backing up any important files followed by a clean install
    b) possibly a custom install (Windows creates a new windows.old > end user manually restores important files from the new windows.old

    Both of the above methods require the reinstallation of drivers and applications.

    Troubleshooting is better when starting with Windows 10 then upgrading to Windows 11 (stable Windows 10 environment to stable or unstable Windows 11 environment)

    Another alternative is to troubleshoot but this can take significant time.
