I recently upgraded my hard drive from a WD 20 GB HD to a Seagate 400 GB HD and at first it seemed to bring up the applications faster but now at times, it slows to a crawl. Even when starting the computer it takes longer to load the applications. Any ideas?

Download and run the manufacturers test diagnostics for the drive to see if it is failing.
HARD DRIVE TOOLS

Have you run your virus/ malware/ spyware scanners? You could have picked up one of those that can create a problem.

I checked all anti-virus & spyware & it all checks out fine however, I did find that when I start it in safe mode, everything seems to work fine. Here are the hijackthis.log and the startuplist.txt files.

If you want your HJT checked out, please open a new topic there. Our HJT log expertslook there first, they are unlikely to see it here.
