I am trying to find out why my computer is running soooo sluggish. I have Microsoft security Essentials installed and ran a scan the other day and it found nothing. I also ran AVG, Ad-aware and Search and Destroy. All 3 found no virus or adware or trojans.
My system just seems to run sooo sluggish. When I click on a program (any program) to open it, the hard drive light pegs solid and it takes like 15 seconds to open. I'm talking even opening something as simple as wordpad or paint.
Here are my system specs:
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 2.89 ghz
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Video: NVidia GForce 9800
Hard Drive: Hitatch 2TB SATA 32mb cache
Optical Drive: Liteon Blu-Ray reader/DVD writer/CDROM Drive
If anyone has any suggestion on how to boost performance or what could be causing the issue, I'd apprecate it!
