I have a 5+ year old Alienware gamers laptop running windows 10 that I use for personal and business work. I carry it back and forth daily. My life is on this computer. I copied all files from previous computers and put them on this one - and those old computers are now gone.
It has gotten slower and slower...… It has locked up and given various errors more and more often.
I would like to do a complete new reinstall of windows 10 - BUT CANNOT LOSE ANY SOFTWARE OR DATA ON IT - and some software I cannot reinstall because I no longer have the disks or authority to use the software. Is there any solution that would actually help me? I don't want to do all of this only to find no improvement.
