Windows 7 slowed to a crawl
My system has slowed to a crawl (and rebooting makes no difference). Every mouse click takes anything between 10 and 60 seconds to get a response and most programmes state 'not responding'. When I boot into Safe Mode it's fine, so I'm guessing it's not a hardware problem. I tried rolling back...
