    Hi

    Using 7700 build of Windows 7 various programs become non-responsive for extended periods

    Windows Explorer can take an age to load a directory ( or sometimes never )
    Google Chrome becomes non responsive
    Internet Explorer also non-responsive
    Eve has started having issues

    This never happened pre-7. Its not everytime ( hell I can write this mail !) but it is daily and it is regular. It got slightly better for a time with the recent update ( 21/9 ) but it has got more frequent ( 2days!).

    The oddest thing about it is this never happened when I got the beta ( mid-august) it ran like a dream really happy with it. Now its like its buggy as hell. There has been no change to my computer, I tried a fresh install but it was back very quick.

    Any help appreciated !

    Jon

    I got so annoyed I went back to XP, which didnt work either ..

    Then it dawned on me, I did add another HDD to it. That was an old one which I had historic problem with but forgot.

    So to date no problems...

    <-- Feels an idiot :)
