My computer runs slow. I have done all of the logical steps to insure that there are no problems with virus, adware, defragmentation, etc. The bottom line is that it take time to open folders and startup applications. Sometimes when starting an application, it freezes and I have to open task manager to stop the process and kill the application. Then, all of a sudden, it works. Note, once the applications start, they run fine with no problems. It just seems that the system is sluggish when it has to "find" things. So that leads me to believe that I may have a possible problem with the NTFS table. Is there any way to check if this is the problem? Is it possible that I simply do not have enough resources? (note, I have included specifications below).
Any advice are suggesstions are well appreciated.
My system is:
Antec 900 - 650W ATX
Intel Core 2 DUO Q6600 Quad Core 4gb
2gb 800mhz DDR2 DIMM
500gb SATA 7200rpm (255GB remain available for use)
Alpha Dog gForce FX 8800 512 pci
XP Pro SP3
