Windows 7: slowdown during hdd activity

and regarding speedfan. I'm using SIW for monitoring and getting hardware info. I think it's one of the best lightweight system information software. And I tried speedfan on my laptop now and it doesn't really recognize all the sensors compared to SIW.

it says it has a 450W max outage but it might be lower since it's a low budget PSU. I remeber checking the voltages in bios and they were fine. Though I might remember wrong

Should be sufficient, although some like heftier PSUs.

Let us know when things are far enough along that you've installed MSE and let it complete its first scan of your system.

it will take at least 3 more hours to complete the memtest and 3 more hours to run a thorough scan with the western digital utility on the 1TB hard disk. And, probably a few more hours to complete the kaspersky and mse scans. So, that's why I was asking for other suggestions

Its best for us and for you, to concentrate on one procedure at a time. I know that you are anxious, but lets be sure that the steps are done correctly, so that we can eliminate potential causes of the problem.

You don't complete the Kaspersky scan. You remove Kaspersky. You install MSE. And all of this after the memory test and hard disk tests are complete.

Will do. I'll test MSE on my laptop meanwhile.
