Windows 7: programms startup slow on (almost) fresh win7 install

programms startup slow on (almost) fresh win7 install

Hello everybody.
I recently reinstalled win7 after several years of successful usage.
Today, about two weeks after resintall, programms started to start slowly. Small programs that used to go up in less that a second now take 10-20 secs. Sometimes, closing and restarting it immediately comes up instantly, but after a minute or so things go back to worse.

Only thing that comes to mind is that I installed OpenVDB client for testing, but removed it and rebooted machine several times.

I'm running defragmentation for night, but I don't have high expectations here ...

Any tips how can I debug this ?


PS. what would you recommend for HDD helth check (free)?

Here's the skinny. Recently installed Windows 7 on my extra HDD to make sure I liked it before getting rid of XP. Install goes off without a hitch. Once I'm in I slow speeds when navigating TO a website, but once on the website, it navigates just fine. So I download Chrome and try it, still no...
