PC not running as well as it used to

Post by useronly on Thu May 01, 2014 7:51 pm


I have an ASUS PC about two years old, I have two games I play, Microsoft Train Simulator and Train Simulator 2014, neither is online.

About 6 months ago the both ran well with FPS in the region of 30 - 50 depending on the density of scenery etc, recently I stuffed up the registry and
the PC would not reboot so I ran a Refresh Install and reloaded the games.

No I am getting very FPS, around 12 - 17, both games have always been set to max quality with all setting being identical to before the refresh install.

I have no idea what is wrong, what to test or how to fix it, hopefully I can get some guidance here.

I have run all the Malware tests from the Malware Forum and Kaspersky 10 Boot Disk Virus disk
and the system is shown to be clean.

These are my system specs.
