What are the rest of your computer's specs?

you should defrag once every 2 weeks, and ANY big files you install immediatly after you do defrag.

are you sure you dont have viruses/spyware.... stuff can always creep into your computer and could be loading at startup. try posting a hijackthis log on hijackthis.de and running spybot, checking the startup items, etc.

Yes, if you have done all that i would suspect failing hardware too. I would start with somethign easy like running memtest on it over night since once it boots off the CD it requires no intervention from you.

I would also run seagates harddrive diagnostics (avalible here.)
