I can even be scanning normally and it isn't this slow. It gets pretty damn bad. I don't want to take the easy way out and reformat just to avoid the problem though. Something makes me think it could be related to the dual-booting Ubuntu install. Seems like Windows started slowing at that time. Anybody think this could be it?

However as I said before: I have been using Win7 since July 5th of 2009 and have never had this issue, and so I know without a shadow of a doubt that this is not normal for it!
Dont know why u want to fight against the idea of reformatting so badly. Frequncy or reformat is dependant on quality of HDD. Budget/failing HDD = more reformat.

Really man, just reformat. All ur problems will go away and if they dont u will know for sure its a hardware issue. If u can back-up ur documents folder and replace after then ur golden.

If the problem didn't start until after you installed Ubuntu, then the only way to fix it is to try and remove it.

If that doesn't fix it, then the only hope is to reformat entirely. As Kirby1 has stated already, it may be your hard drive. Reformatting is the only surefire way of knowing that it's the hard drive. If it's memory, then memtest should be able to tell you that.

Because most people don't want to hear "your only option is to format and start over". As you know, that's the last resort.

So during my time here on OCN, I have gotten into the habit of making sure I either do my best to find an alternative solution, or at least assist others in finding one.

Sure there may be an alternative solution to a refomat, but in this situation 9 times out of ten the alternative will be more work and more time consuming than simply reformatting, and the alternative is likely to not even solve your problem.

If you dont want to spend a lot of time messing with the issue, just reformat. Your at that point anyway.


I never said it was the only option, but thanks for arguing against your own asumptions.

Can you blame me? It was your first suggestion, and you even said you're not sure what the issue is. I mean, it's almost like that's your answer for any problem: not sure what it is? Just format and start over! heh It's not that easy for everyone.

Maybe ChicknWafflZ would rather not format. Maybe it would be easier for him to find a solution instead of formatting.

I find that in most cases, people will do anything to avoid formatting and starting over.

More assumptions I see. Rarely do I suggest a reformat, but once again, (and you would be hard pressed to find any other post in which I suggested this) thanks for arguing against yourself.

Once again, there may be another solution but it would probably take longer to figure out, if at all.

Whatever, man. Like I said, your first post in this thread was a suggestion to format and start over because you don't know what the issue is. At least try to figure it out, y'know? Or at the very least, see if he is willing to format and start over.

You have a computer repair business, so I am surprised that you didn't take any time to either see what is causing this or to see if he is willing to format and start over.

Either way, I'm not giving up on this. However, if he wants to format and start over, then great! But if that problem comes back, then we'll be right back at square one trying to pinpoint the culprit.

Y'know, maybe it's like he said: maybe it's due to putting Ubuntu on that small partition. So maybe the solution is to get rid of that partition. What do you think about that?

Spoken like a true amature.

Repair = time (usually lots of it)

when cost is not an issue usally the quickest solution is the best.

Figuring out what the exact issue is and how to solve it would:
A: most likely take longer than reformatting
B: likely to not solve the issue (on a first or second try anayway, hence point "A")


This has been a fun debate. I am down to keep going if you are.

When you do enough computer repair you learn to give the best/quickest solution instead of the heaftly trial and error solution that may or may not work.
