Default Performance progressively getting worse

Hello all! I am a long time player of Age of Conan. And at launch i could runthe game at near max settings perfectly fine and could do so for quite some time. Now about 3 months ago my performance dropped a little and since then has been a slippery slope down hill. My computer performance is terrible! Any programs i run are incredibly slow. Even after a full system restore to factory settings. Any ideas?

Clean your computer on the inside.
Defrag. your HDD.
Update video drivers.
Clean the registry.

It could be your internet connection also.

The things I listed will not return its performance to its peak because as computers get older, they tend to lose performance.

Also along with the degrag, erase files you don't need/want. Like older movies never watched unwanted music etc.

That extra space should help.
