Alright Wannabe. I'm gonna run the scans the way you suggest.

I'll need a while to get all this done, with being sick and school and work and all... These tests take time lol

The longer the tests run, the better the results. You want to test them good and hard. :whistling:

Well, tests are done. As far as I can tell, its not any of my hardware, and definately not the ram.

I ran 3 passes to all 3 sticks in everywhich order you can think of.

Ok....

Download, install, and run WinAudit. Save a report in either Excel or HTML format. Zip the saved report and attach it to a PM to me.

Note: If you save the report in HTML format, it will generate three files. I need only the one named "rightframe.html".

In task manager: What is cpu usage (%) when the computer is idle and what is it like when you run a simple process such as clicking My Computer. Also in task manager, do you see any processes that consume a lot of cpu resources? Check this with IE running.

How attached are you to the Alcohol 120 you have installed. There are some issues with that application causing Windows Explorer crashes, Internet Explorer crashes, system slowdowns, and it does not play well with Norton Ghost. If your trial version is nearly over and you don't intend on buying the product, uninstall it and see if the system speed comes back up. Be careful, though...Alcohol also has some issues uninstalling... :whistling: Overall, it's a pretty buggy program for being so highly rated by so many...go figure.

I would have never known Alcohol has these bugs... Ironically enough, also, the uninstall just failed.

Should I remove it manually?

Ok, I just uninstalled it, following some instructions I found on alcohol forums.

I'll let you know if the lag has dissipated shortly.

Did I mention it had a buggy uninstaller? :whistling:

If you can manually uninstall it, please do.

So did I as that was the only obvious conflict I saw in the report. Let me dig in a little deeper. That what I like about WinAudit...it lays the system bare for you. There were an awful lot of DCOM errors, but I attributed them to a disabled network device I also found in the report. I'll get back to you... :whistling:

Everything is in that report. :whistling: That's why we transfer by PM. Have a good look at it...probably the most comprehensive report you can get from a machine.

I've been researching the errors on the applications side of this, but there are so many of them that I just can't figure out what's causing what. :blink:

When you next experience some serious lag behavior, make not of the time...then go into the event viewer and look under applications. Post back with any hangs or errors that occurred at the time the lag started to happen.

Just seems like about every application in Windows is hanging at one time or another. :whistling:
