    has anyone else noticed win 8 sometimes slows down and is very slow? sometimes i have to restart several times untill the slowness is gone sometimes! I have an hp dv7 laptop with 8 gig ram!

    i begin to wounder if it could be the hardware perhaps? or is it windows?

    I've only experiencing internet browsing slow down, hanging a lot in "sending request" state, but nothing else. What kind of slow down you have?

    internet browsing...even when i type this text it hangs and lags behind!

    when i boot up sometimes and switch to desktop the Icons are gone and it is totally slow..and they pop up after 10-20 seconds..it seems like the whole deskop is struggeling..can reboot and then it is working ok

    and when i play Music with mpc (latest k-lite codec pack standard) Everything else is slowing down (sometimes)..well it is not mp3's but mp4 files i play

    Yup, had the same slowdowns.
    Installation of AMD smbus drivers + disabling Windows Defender solved my problems.

    I just read at HP you have Intel chipset -> Installing latest Intel chipset drivers may solve your problems -> If you are activated BACKUP YOUR ACTIVATION!

    I can say mine is running ridiculously quick (and my laptop is only 2gb ram 1.87 dual core)It would suggest if yours is running slow that you do an anti virus/malware scan or even a reinstall.

    Seems like a consensus to me. If it's running slow, you did something wrong or your machine has problems.

    NOD32 is notoriously slow... it could be why

    Mine is soooo fast.
    But I'm running on a 4GHz 965BE with an SSD, but it's still faster than 7. (3ish second boot up from after the bios)

    I personally use COMODO, but I actually trust the new Security Essentials + Smartscreen built into Windows 8 for my normal home use computers.
