How does the startup folder look ? what I mean is what load do you have on the processor as a result of programs running ?
Download Msconfig for windows 2000 then click on the startup tab and compare your list of items against this list to see what can be unchecked.

startup item:
mobsync - mobsync.exe /logon
NvCpl - RUNDLL32.EXE winnt\system32\nvcpl.dll, nvstartup
Type32 - mouse..
Point32 - keyboard..
ccApp - (norton internet security)
ccRegVfy - (norton internet security)
NVMCTRAY - RUNDLL32.EXE winnt\system32\NVMCTRAY.dll nvtaskbar


I've had XP installed once.. I never had this problem.. So it's kinda strange i'm having it now with win2k..at the moment i have 354mb FREE ram..

It's just only when I copy files from CD to harddrive...:confused:

I must say Its a bit puzzling and all I can offer on top of that would be to scandisk and check on the video drivers.

post a hijackthis log to check, but I have sen several reports of slowdowns with corrupt SP4 installs on 2000. (the consensus seems to be stick with SP3 & do the security updates)
go to http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

I'd start at the most obvious place, check in Device Manager, IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers, on the Advanced tab. Is the CD running in PIO mode? If so, it'll chew up a lot of processor time if it is, that's the first thing I'd address.
