I few days ago I had a crash of my favorite Bit Torrent client. I had to re install it and it took a lot of work to get it up and running again, Now it downloads at over twice the speed it previously managed. My computer is running well except for one glaring problem.

In the past (and I mean for years) it has taken me 2 -3 minutes to copy a 700 MB form one place to another. Now it takes 30 minutes to accomplish this. Today I moved (not copied) a 3 GB file from one drive to another and it took over an hour!

I have defragged my HD, cleaned my machine with CCleaner and run Search and Destroy and Ad Aware in safe mode.

Any suggestions of where I can look to resolve this problem?

Thanks

I would investigate what is running on the system (via Task Manager) and also satisfy myself that the system is not infected.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I found the following *.exe currently running.

RTHDCPL
Searchindexter
AAWService
MOM

Do you see anything here that could cause the problem?

Also please note that my DVD writer/player now no longer sees any disc that I insert.

RTHDCPL

Realtek HD Audio Control Panel

AAWService

Ad-Aware Security Program

MOM

Part of ATI Catalyst Control Center


The one that concerns me is:

Searchindexter

If that's not a typo then I'd say you might have a problem.

IMO, Ad-Aware 2007 is ineffective and outdated...I suggest removing it from your system. I further suggest replacing it with Malwarebytes or SUPERAntispyware or both.

http://www.file.net/process/mom.exe.html

I've never used the Catalyst Control Center for anything, although I've had several AMD cards and this system has an AMD chipset, with Catalyst Control Center (but no MOM running). I would suspect you can either disable or remove the CCC.

The searchindexer.exe thing...seems to be an issue with two things.

a. Vista users.

b. XP users who installed the Search function designed for Vista, Search 4.0.

I suggest uninstalling this if you have XP.

RTHDCPL.exe, http://www.processlibrary.com/directory/files/rthdcpl/. I would leave that alone.

A million thanks.
searchindexer.exe seems to have been the problem
