Default slow windows after format

My dad's computer has gotten slower after being reformatted and I don't know what is causing it because he doesnt have any spyware or viruses, has av installed. it's not a normal slowdown either, all the programs launch fast and respond pretty fast but the windows tear when moved and scrolling through pictures and pdf files is really slow.

the only thing i can think of is the video drivers for the video card
try updating them
and if that doesnt work my next suggestion would be to put the setting on your 8600 back to default (un overclock it)
because to high of an OC can cause it not to run properly
