I bought an acer v5 nitro (16gb ram version) and at first it used to handle daily tasks with no issues. However, these days its takes forever to open programs etc Any suggestions on bringing my laptop back to life?

Have a look in task manager at the memory and CPU usage. 

 

Also look in resmon.exe (find it in the performance tab of task manager) at the disk usage (on Windows 7 - disk usage should just be in task manager on Windows 8-10). See if it is abnormally high.

 

Also check if any virus scans are running in the background. They slow down systems a lot.

no programs running

then you just need to reinstall windows

100% disk usage is not good and will slow down your laptop .

but first don't forget to backup your files .

Just because something is not good doesn't mean you have to reinstall windows also, if you're running windows 10 you can reset it while keeping all your files. Backing up your files is something you should do anyway not just for troubleshooting. 

 

@donggun222 use task manager to see what process is taking up the disk could very will just be windows updates.
