Windows is running really slow! + USB FLash Drive issue
I have been using Win7 for about a week and it has been getting incrementally slower every day.
Here are the steps I have taken so far:
I have disabled every service I can disable without compromising the functionality of the OS. This includes Superfetch and Indexing.
I have cleaned out MSConfig of booting anything that isn't necessary.
I have disabled transparency on Aero
My CPU is hanging at around 50% usage per core and my ram goes up to 97% usage about 5 minutes after bootup and stays there. The page file has been increased to 4Gb.
Here are my specs:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 processor 4200+ 2.21Ghz
3Gb of ram (2.25Gb usable)
Dual Nvidia GeForce 7600 GS. These are not currently in SLI as I can't find any Nvidia drivers that have functional SLI. The 2nd card is currently sitting in error state, don't know if this could be something to do with it.
I have attached some images which I hope will make diagnosis easier.
My other problem is that Windows 7 reads my Sandisk U3 Cruzer memory stick as unallocated space when XP picks it up no problem. It was formatted to FAT32. I reformatted it to NTFS, but still the same issue.
