    Hi 2 all,

    The following is my newly built PC configuration:

    Windows 7-64bit
    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 860 @ 2.80GHz
    Gigabyte Motherboard H55M-D2H
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470-1GB
    4.00 GB RAM
    HDD WD1002FAEX 1TB SATA
    Norton Antivirus 2011
    All Windows, Drivers and Software updates installed with no issues.
    HD is constantly being defragged
    No running programs other than Norton and the Defrag software

    My problem:


    I have a powerful machine but I keep getting:

    1. Repeated "High Disk Usage" error.
    2. Sluggish and random hanging/un-hanging when typing in my (no addons) browser (I tried and uninstalled 3 different browsers with the same result) and also in any simple task in Word or Windows Explorer like copy , paste and move.
    3. Slow Startup & Shutdown of windows (approx. 5 minutes each).

    Windows Performance Information and Tools tells me that "disk data transfer rate" is my lowest score (5.9)

    I can play the toughest games available (COD Black Ops, Fallout New Vegas...etc) at the highest settings) smoothly with no problems for hours but simple tasks seem so sluggish!

    Please help. :confused:
