So I am your typical computer abuser, sorry user. I regularly sit down at my desk and think damm windows why is it so slow or clunky?
And I don't have an in house IT person.

Firstly I know why Its because i abuse it. I download liitle progams that look intresting then forget to remove them I go to dodgy sites I do all the things i shouldn't do. And it goes without saying its not a mac!

Accepting all that and I am not going to really change my ways.

What are the top 5 things i should be doing each week to make my pc run smoothly

Should I be running CCleaner? malewarebytes? do we still have to defragement our discs?

So I would appreciate if you clever ones could suggest Top 5 things us abusers should be doing each week to make our PC life better

Stop worrying about maintenance on your computer, run decent AV and or AntiMalware, and buy a SSD and another 4GB Memory for a total of 8 so you don't have to worry about slowness ever again.

Computers do not NEED weekly or even monthly maintenance except Windows Updates and Backups. 

Problem solved :)
