QuestionWhat's Going On Here? Slow Win7 System Gives No Clues PinmemberRoger Wright12-Dec-11 19:17 
When I built this beast in May, it was a screaming machine - Intel i7 CPU, 12 GB RAM, 1.5 TB SATA HDD. Within the past month, though, it's become sluggish and unresponsive. Both AdAware and MSE report a clean system - no nasty beasties lurking and stealing CPU cycles. Task Manager displays no active apps, less than 2% CPU activity for any process, 0% network capacity used. Performance monitoring reports that one CPU core is about 60% occupied, while the other 3 are idle, and no more than 20% of RAM is in use. Defrag reports 0% fragmentation on the HDD, not surprising since I have it set to defrag once a week. Ordinarily, with information like this, I'd declare the machine healthy, but the fact remains that it's doggy poo. Simply loading Solitaire, which used to start up in under one second, now takes 12 to 15 seconds to load. Navigating the web used to be an instantaneous process, but it now takes half a minute or so just to see a new URL. Once there, navigating the site is still extremely fast, but switching to a new domain again takes a long time. I purchased Registry Booster from Uniblue and ran that; it claimed to find 309 registry errors and fixed them. After rebooting the system it actually did run like the wind again for about two days, then it was back to crawling.
 
I've used up all the tools in my toolbox, and I'm out of ideas. Any suggestions?
