Likes # 0

hi everyone

please i need your help.

10 days ago,i formatted and re-install windows7,64bit.

install all the windows update including SP1,everything is up to date in windows update.

install all the programs(internet security,,updated all the software and the hardware,everything is up to date

the problem is my pc is too slow,i have a lot of programs included disk defragmenter,example; -system mechanic(used defragmentation,and fix the registry error, from this software) -system utilities(again used the defragmentation software), -smart defrag -deflagger -0&0 defragment

i used the CC cleaner to fix the registry error and clean my pc from the registry error

i used the defragmentation software once at a time.

example:if i have a folder and i want to (rename it),i right click on that folder,(Than),a blue circle come up and kept turning,and turning,for about 2 minutes,than i can rename the folder finally.

this blue circle getting on my nerve.i got so annoyed.

i went to window task manager,in process tab i saw (system idle process):description:percentage of time processor is idle,is using 95% from the processor.can i stop this (system idle process) by pressing end task.

please i am really getting fed up from this problem,honestly i am thinking to re-format the the hard drive,and re-install everything from scratch.

do you think this will solve the problem(i don't want to do that)

My pc spec:

intel quad core 4GB memory sapphire vapor-x 5770(up to date) windows update is up to date,including SP1

can you please help me make my pc a lot faster,and please how to do that?

i hope to hear from you very soon.

my kindest regards habs

I can only assume you have a very efficient design, with plenty of Air vents, however as you must admit, a fan not running at peak efficiently can cause the type of problems, as described by habs2habs.

Just a thought--

How old is your machine?

i.e. Is it capable of running in 64 bit or would it run better in 32 bit mode?
