Hi guys, I am new and I seek some advice.
If you look at my system specs you can see that my system is a pretty decent gaming build.
Although having this nice machine things aren't working quite as fast and well as I would like them too.
Here is my predicament.
For example when I have xfire open. I click on "My Profile" it will take literally 2 minutes for the Mozilla Firefox to open up and show My profile online.
It does this with a lot of different things too (mainly links that require a web browser to open). Here is the weird thing. My games are running just fine I don't see any problem when running games the performance is where it should be. It's just when I navigate through Windows everything is just slow and laggy and I have to reboot like 5 times a day to make it enjoyable.
I don't know how to explain it better but I thing I explained it well enough for you guys to understand what I am talking about.
I am a pretty experienced computer user and I have reformated windows, etc. It happens after every re-format or re-install of Windows I don't know what to do. This is really bugging me :whistling:.
Any help is appreciated, let me know if you guys need any additional information.

What is the processor speed and type?
What is the memory speed and type?
What games are you running before the problem?

Also for Firefox there is an add-on to minimize Firefox instead of closing it.
In the add-ons section at Mozilla, search for 'minimize to tray'.
And 'minimize to tray enhancer'

This will keep Firefox loaded but not using hardly any resources.
