I recently started to run in some problems with Vista, never had any before. My windows explorer just fails to respond fast when I, for example, open a program it takes about 2-3 min even though CPU usage is 0-5% in these minutes, and then it suddenly bursts to 50-80% CPU usage for 1 sec and the program starts running (Ex: Mozzila, Anti vir or any other program). I have the same problem with even a small thing like right-clicking a file, it takes 3 mins before the list shows up.
My space on C was low for a while, under 1 GB, but now i managed to bring it up to 2 GB( never had problems at 2 GB before, on this same PC and OS) so i don’t think that is the problem.
Today i noticed in Process Explorer that a process called “Interrupts” (Hardware interrupts) shows up almost every time ,when the first programs, at windows start up ,are executed.
Any solutions, except a format?
PC is decent( CPU: E6750, Memory: 2 GB Twin Corsair, Video: 8800 512MB, Motherboard: Some intel with P35 chipset)
BTW: I looked for DMA mode for my Hard-disk
