PC used to be so smooth on games like fortnite but now its slimy and latent

When I first made my PC a year ago I had no issues and everything ran perfectly, I think it was windows 1809. But now after I updated and am now at the latest version of windows fortnite is randomly slimy and acts as if vsync is on. Most of the time after restarting my computer its normal but sometimes I even have to reinstall windows to get it smooth. Razer synapse sometimes doesn't recognize any of my peripherals and geforce experience does not have the sharing and in game overlay options. 


Is this something to do with the new windows, bad compatibility of my parts with the new windows or possibly a bad program I installed


Let me know if there is any other easy to install operating systems or easy ways to get windows 7 or an older windows 10

When I restart my computer 60% of the time it goes back to its normal responsiveness and smoothness so Im not sure if its the game.
