Problem with slow computer

post #1 of 50
Thread Starter 
As you can see my system is quite powerful. For some reason it runs unusually slowly. I have run numerus antispyware scans and antivirus scans and registry scans. Yet it is still slow at times.

Windows has been known to degrade over time, how long have you had that installation?

Define slow?
Does it: take a long time to open programs? Take a long time to load windows? Does the Mouse move slowly across the screen? Do your games suffer from low FPS?

Slow is perceptive - you may want to grab a SSD drive if things seem to be opening slow, or windows takes a while to load. You may also want to consider a fresh format, and the latest drivers.

Are there any processes or services that are using up tons of system resources?

This could be the problem, Although you have 8 threads. I would run a defrag, that's most likely the culprit.

EDIT: Yea, what do you mean by slow?

You still haven't defined "Slow" but try running non beta versions of web browsers, you may find issues with them running "slow" because the code for them has not been fully optimized, there are bugs or errors in the programming.
