I have an HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop. The computer was acting real slow, it took a minute to load windows, then it took half a minute to open browser windows etc. I just decided to reinstall the OS from the partion on the HDD. So I backed up everything, and started the recovery (destructive recovery). But now the computer is working slower, it takes about 3 minutes to boot up. Why is this happening?

I would run the appropriate hard drive diagnostic (long, not short, test) on the hard drive...as a prelim.

Run a diagnostic on your HD. It could have a problem. It might be doing many retries to read or write data.
