    Hello friends,
    I have such trouble in one PC,

    I installed clean installation on PC, i formated a C: drive and after installed Windows 7 ultimate 64bit on it, PC is with dual processor and 4 GB RAM, installation finished normally, i installed all manufacturer drivers on it, PC is new bought and i had own CD disks for installation of all drivers.
    But the problem is that PC works very slowly, when desktop appears it is thinking a long time, speed is not good.

    what can be reason of it?

    if anyone can please help me.

    thanks in advanced.

    My first step would be to check what apps running with high use of resources using an advanced Task Manager like Whatsrunning or some like that. If that isn't a problem, I would use to check the HDD using a software like HDD Regenerator or DRevitalize for to scan the HDD and see there Soft Errors. If so, you may could repair them. DRevitalize also shows you the timing of slow sectors which HDD Regenerator didn't do.

    Google for the Apps, both are available as Trial with limited function able to see what happen with your drive.

    winkey+r and run "taskmgr"
    find which programs are hogging cpu/disk time. Uninstall them.

    That Windows Task Manager gives just a little infos while Whatsrunning gives you much more and also to directly check online about What/How/To Do and that could helps quite a bit if it's an software problem! I use Whatsrunning since version 1 and it helped me a lot!

    I do believe that there's a huge differences between Payware and Scamware! Or did you mean that any software which cost's money is scam? Please enlighten me for to be able to understand! Thanks!

    Don't understand why you guy's come up every time with Spinrite, a very old apps, which were good at his time but today! Spinrite isn't able to really working on newer drives and for sure not with external USB Drives!! HDD Regenerator and DRevitalize are still under development and working with the newer drive generation well!

    You're welcome!

    I hope that your Hardware isn't in error. Anyway, that apps didn't do any harm to the Hardware but may can revert errors if some are found. It also may gives you and good view about the condition of your HDD's, special while using DRevitalize. If the slow sectors which need much more access time than 100ms I would suggest to save all data to an other storage media. After that download from HDDGURU the HDD Low Level Formatter, which is availavble as Free and Paid versions with only slightly limits for the free (max 50MB/s speed). Run it and do a Low Level format to that HDD with Delay Errors. Keep in mind, that using Low Level format, will distroy ALL data to NON-Recovery Stage (there will be not work any recovery software any more!!), get the HDD back to an real virgin stage. Than run the DRevitailze again and check those errors still there and if, forget that HDD!

    Hope that gives you a bit more info about that figures!
