So I am rocking this rig:
i7 860 @ 3.78GHz
4GB G.Skill 2100MHz
P55-ud5
GTX275
Running off a WD Blue 320GB 2.5" hdd

Now I ain't even gaming, but it lags when I open 'Computer' on the start menu, or the control panel. It would also lag when it tries to render the file icons of images etc... to the point where the icons would just stay blank.

Sometimes it would even slow down my internet and the page wouldn't load. On rare occasions, my music cuts in and out when playing through windows media player, much like when it doesnt load fast enough on youtube etc.

Anyone has any idea why this is happening? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I am thinking my hdd is the problem, but I cannot be sure. Have tried formatting a few times already.

Cheers

did this just start? I would suggest tracing back whatever the last changes you did and revert. Also, you can look at the event log if there are any services that are aborting.
