Hey all, after i couldn't find any problem smiliair to mine over the web i thought i might as well make a new post and see if anyone can help me...

Anyway, after using Java&Netbeans (Java developing IDE) for a while i started having some weird issues with running projects over the Netbeans software, and after the auto updater of Netbeans failed, i tried completely uninstalling Java and Netbeans hoping a fresh install of the latest version would solve the problem. And then the trouble began:

While attempting to remove Netbeans, it notified me there are files in use in the appdata/roaming/netbeans folder, and the uninstaller can't complete the action. After i manually deleted this folder (prolly shouldn't have :| ) , the uninstall completed successfully but my computer started running incredibly slow - startup time after reboot was about 20 seconds (before was about 5), and even basic operations like deleting files, installing software etc. ran really slow.


Thing is, this problem presists even after i formatted my computer entirely clean.

when formatting didn't help, i started assuming i somehow caused a hardware failure, but using the windows memory and hard disk diagnostic tools didn't find anything...

If anyone have a clue about what could it be or what else should i check for, it'd be great.. i'm attaching my system information:

Well...Windows was installed at 1414, the Speccy was run at 1609 yesterday.  Hardly seems like a reliable timeline to diagnose whether you have system problems or not.  SP1 and subsequent updates weren't even installed.


There is no indication of CPU or hard drive problems during that interval.

Above error seems to relate to use of sysprep on install effort...I don't know anything about such issues.
