Windows 7: Newly installed Win 7 running slow on strong PC

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Newly installed Win 7 running slow on strong PC

Hi, hope I will find some help here...

I've just installed fresh Win 7 ultimate x64 via USB. Right from the start it was working really slow but it just got worse.

My hardware is decent: Intel i7 CPU, 12GB RAM, WD Caviar 500GB system HDD. Task Manager shows that only 13% of RAM is being used and 0% of CPU. Still, I can barely work on it - it keeps freezing everytime I click on more than one window...

Once I had to do a hard restart since it didn't want to shutdown normally, and then I got startup failure screen. Startup repair didn't do anything but it still managed to boot somehow.

I tried to optimize win process but that didn't do anything either.

I believe it might be the HDD, since I ran Win normally on other HDD with same hardware... But I did use current one as backup storage without a problem.

Please give me suggestions, what should I do?
