Just reinstall Windows 10. You don't need a tool of any kind to clean your PC. Those tools are more likely to install extra bloat than what comes preinstalled on the machines themselves. W10 finds the drivers you need anyways, at least basic-level ones so you can reinstall the rest at your leisure.

I'm not that knowledgeable of computer

You can do a factory reset but that just restores it to the point of when you will boot it up for the first time, 

but i recommend just uninstalling any bloat ware from control panel rather than mess around with it if you aren't sure of what you are doing 

Also if you do a fresh install of windows you could lose drivers especially for some features like the led display on the cover so make sure those drivers are available before hand if you attempt that
