Generally speaking a slow system is down to a few things. Hard drive is fragmented badly and needs to be defragged. Or more likely, your system is infected with malware, spyware and adware which causes a system to slow down.

I suppose the situation with the DVD Burner could also be involved. I think I would physically disconnect the drive for testing. Is this a laptop, and if so, is there some type of setting in the bios regarding how the device is handled in the optical bay?

I notice your boot device is HardDiskVolume2. This is probably perfectly fine, but could you attach a picture of your Disk Management Window using the paperclip on advanced replies and the snipping tool to take the picture. You probably have another drive taking the Volume1 slot, or perhaps a recovery partition.

I see you are using Australian time with a US location...make sure your clock is set to the correct time zone.

As bassfisher6522 suggests, what anti-virus utilities are you using to check your system?

If you watch the Task Manager for the CPU usage, do you see any process taking the time when the system is running slow?

Any Error or Warning messages in the Event Viewer that might be related?

no error
the virus protector
MS Securiity esscentials.
I have tried 6 g ram but that does not improve performance
could it be the way w 7 uses the ram should it be set by me to allow if so what ?
the panasonic burner is a problem , I will remove it to see if thats is causing the main problem with slow running'

To start, just in case you do not know, your boot files are on the smaller drive. This should work OK, but remember you cannot remove the small one until you set up another type of boot.

My Epson printer has a card reader that will show in Computer. If there is no media in the slot, the system will look for something and slow things down. But if it shows as USB, hard for me to have a good answer as to it being relevant, but it might be.

Did removing the DVD help anything or change the behavior? I suppose you might try removing the printer also, are you running it as USB or wireless?
