Windows 7: Win 7 x32 Ultimate sudden total slowdown in windows performance.

10 Oct 2011   #11

Windows7 Ultimate x32

It takes me 20 minutes to get the system running, then to do anything other than work on line takes about 20 minutes each for any operation.
Any process takes me at least 20 minutes each! It would take a LONG time to do anything. Taking it to the repair shop option is getting closer for me now. Was a holiday here today, so he is open tomorrow.
Figure it has to be HD, motherboard or memory, however maybe not!
It just takes forever to do any analysis, to do three or four things would take most of a day right now.

This is a good idea and included in the steps given to be run from the DVD Repair console or Repair CD, manually if it isn't automated in Startup Repair.

Well problem solved. It was a hard drive failure, however not my main drive, it was my backup. I had been focusing on my primary drive, then suddenly thought maybe it was the secondary. Well, it was, and as soon as I removed it, everything worked fine. Beta was bang on!

What were you accessing on you second drive that caused this to happen? The reason I ask is the torrent ITunes may have dropped a virus or such when you were using it. I recommend scanning the drive you are using with this also to be sure.
