When I startup the computer it's extremely slow. Then, when I try and open up other programs, it takes about 2 minutes. For example, when I try to open windows, it takes forever. If I then close it and try and open it again, it's still just as slow. When I try and switch between programs, the screen seems to freeze for a short time. Task manager is really slow to open as well and I seem to be forever getting messages that "program not responding". Even when I try to open the internet, or switch between websites, I get the same issue. Opening Outlook is the same. This is what I have done so far to try and fix it.
Gone into startup menu and unchecked everything except my firewall and virus protection.
Regularly run ATF cleaner.
I've run disc defrag.
I've run disc cleanup.
Ensured my IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers Primary IDE Channel is set to DMA.
Have run anti-virus software - no virus detected
So now I'm at a loss as to what to try now. Any suggestions??
