In the last few days, Windows has started giving me warnings about "slow performance". Sometimes it tells me it's automatically closed certain running programs, often it disables Aero and all the UI effects. I'm getting this up to a few times a day.
I've got an i7-2760QM, 8 GB RAM, nVidia Quadro 1000M 2GB VRAM, Crucial MX100 series SSD. My WEI is 6.7. Not slow.
I have CoreTemp and GPU Meter gadgets running to watch the performance measurements, and they are never anywhere near capacity. RAM is at about half, GPU is at a lowly 5% usage. There's never any perceivable performance dip when Windows starts nagging me about "performance" There's got to be something messed up in the Windows system files or something.
I've updated the VGA drivers (problem persists), repair install isn't really an option since the system volume is encrypted. sfc "found corrupt files and successfully repaired them", it hasn't actually fixed anything.
Short of doing a clean install (which I should do, but don't currently have the time or desire), what else can I look for? Is there a configuration option to just say, "stop nagging me about performance"? The action center options are useless.
