The problem is the CPU is continually maxed out at 100% and everything takes an age to happen.
I've got many theories but I really could do with someone in the know here.
Here are my thoughts at the moment,
It's either a bios problem (I've not updated it yet as I don't see the need to) or a problem with NCQ on the SATA HDD.
Everythings up to date (I've updated them):
NForce4 Chipset drivers,
NVidia graphics drivers,
There is a firewall running,
It's definately not infected, It's just something simple I've missed. It's annoying both me and my girlfriend spending a lot on a computer only to find it running slower than her 2 year old Celeron Laptop.
Any ideas guy's I'd really appreciate it. I'll buy you a virtual drink.
