That is great to hear. Now the other program you referenced is a good program. Below is the explanation of it via Wiki.

Microsoft IntelliPoint is the Microsoft brand driver for Microsoft's IntelliMouse series of mice. Microsoft has released versions for both Windows and Mac OS X (including Universal binaries).

IntelliPoint supports all known Microsoft mice, as well as generic 3/5-button mice. However, advanced features may only be available on certain models (button options shown are specific to the selected model).

Havent had chance to give it a real test as Ive been installing windows on the new build, though Im going to take that slow and I'll still be using this as main pc for a while.
It still takes an age to get the desktop so Im sure all is not well.
I will perhaps re-install a game tomorrow and see how that performs.
I think in a couple of weeks I will have everything transferred and then i can try and see if its a hardware issue, try another power supply for a start, I'll then upgrade a little and since ive lost my recovery disc i'll probably have to buy another copy of windows :D

If you had the installation disk we could try a parallel installation.
That would tell us if for sure if it is a OS or hardware problem.
That would install a second windows on the system with nothing but windows on it. If it worked with no slowdown then we can say it is the OS that is causing the problem.
If it all worked fine you could move all your data over to the new installation and then delete the bad installation.

OK I guess at this point once you get all the data transferred over to the new system we can then work on redoing this system. Slow as it may be it is still working at this time. Without the installation disk we are limited to the repair on the OS we need to do.

Hi rshaffer61

One thing I have just noticed, I currently have 3 IE8 browser windows open and no other applications apart from antivirus and firewall of course. I have been heavily using resources all day and shut them all down now but looking in task manager I am using 800Mb memory. CPU useage is down at 0% but I only have to move my mouse around or type and the cpu useage jumps up as high as 30%. Is this normal?

You are not accounting for the autoruns, services and startup items.
Plus the OS alone will use minimum 256 megs alone.
