Over the last few days I have noticed that my computer is running slow. I checked the HDD's and the read / write speed is about sixteen times slower than it should be. I've loaded a fresh copy of XP onto another drive in the computer, and it runs at the proper speed. I have three drives, one SATA and two IDE. The problem copy of XP Home is on the SATA and the copy that runs as it should is on an IDE drive. I have run all the usual stuff, Malware Bytes etc. Is there a more specific problem that I might have? I did clone the HDD last month so all is not lost, but I'd like to sort it, if there is something I can do to make things right again.
