How long after the Reinstall did the lag happen?

What Programs have you installed?

What data have you put on the computer?

What have you done sence the reinstall?

Thanks for the reply,

the lag i noticed after windows service pack two was installed although this could be attributed to that was the first thing i did was install the update. Installed drivers from resource cd installed iolo systemmechanic. other then have done nothing.

Thanks again
