Newly upgraded desktop very slow after...
I have just bought a new low performance but brand new Isus P5GC-MX/1333 motherboard, with a new Intel Pentium dual Core processor with 4GB of memory.
It was lightning fast naturally after testing it at the shop but after updating all soft/hardware from windows update, the computer suddenly seemed to take a lot of pressure.
My suspiscions are the .Net Framework version 2 and 3 SP2 (180MB each) programs and Norton. But surely with the boost of processor and memory power should override any such demanding programs. This desktop has a dogged history of being slow from turning on to turning off.
Other large programs are cyberlink powerdvd 9 (188MB), Office XP standard (147MB), windows live essentials (128MB), adobe reader 8.0 (128MB), HP photo and imaging (110MB), compatibilty pack for office 2007 (102MB), Java 6 update 11 (90MB).
The 38GB HD is 1/3 full.
