I recently installed Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit on my PC. It ran fine for about a week and then it got all sluggish and the time it takes to boot is around 10-20 minutes. When it loads up after that time the programs run very slow.
THis same problem happened on XP. I upgraded to win 7 from XP thinking that the problem would go away. I reformatted only a week ago.
I ran malwarebytes and regcure but i have no such luck on trying to solve the problem.
BIOSTAR TA790GXE 128M Mobo
Nvidia 9800GT 512mb
4GB of RAM DDR2
AMD Phenom II x4 955 black edition 3.3GHZ
WD Caviar gREEN 500GB sata 2.0 hard drive
and some SONY DVD drive
I have updated all the drivers except for the SATA/RAID drivers because i get an error everytime i attempt to install it.
Since it happened to my XP OS could it just be the hard drive?
