Angry Why is windows STILL running slow ?

I have 175GB out of 182GB of free space.

Almost no programs installed other than those that I need like drivers and a few other microsoft things.

Windows Live OneCare virus protection.

My computer is practically empty and IT STILL RUNS SLOW.

Ive defragmented the disk, checked it for errors, removed all unnecessary and temporary internet files and did all sorts of maintanence of that nature.

IT STILL RUNS SLOW. What is causing this. It can't be spyware either. Ive checked that out to.

I don't know how to check that but I am sure whatever it is will be normal.

Do you have all the drivers installed?

Also, I need to ask you to shorten up your sig a bit. The rules only allow for five lines, and I'm counting six.

Sorry. There I changed it and I don't know. I haven't installed any drivers since I got the thing. Maybe thats it. I have only had it for a year though but I will look into that. Thanks !
