Computer is slow after removing files

My windows security had been picking up threats so I had decided to clear out the entire Roblox temp folder (that’s where it was picked up and where it was targeting) but my computer has been slower since. Could this just be coincidence (my laptop will be three years old in December) or should there be something I need to be concerned about?

If it’s unbearably slow, I would just back up all of your documents, pictures, etc. Using the following command:

robocopy “%userprofile%” “G:Backup-%username%” /e /xd appdata /xj /xo /fft /r:1 /w:1 /np

Where G:\ is an external hard drive you’ve plugged in, so amend the drive letter to match the drive letter of your external hard drive

Then completely reinstall Windows, setup your account, etc. and finally copy the data you backed up off your external drive, onto your PC.

By the time you spend troubleshooting everything, etc. It would be quicker to start fresh

It was most likely a coincidence, Laptops performance deteriorates much faster than desktops, and are already pretty slow as they are, you can see if there are any unneeded startup items aswell.
