Does your PC takes long time to booted up too?, If that is the case, you may need to Run scandisk in windows, choice Thorough, click Automaically fix errors.  Then Click Advanced icon, in advanced options goto cross-linked files click delete, now goto lost files fragment, pick Free.  Click OK buttom for leave the screen, and now start the scandisk.  Depending the size of your drive, and number of your files, that may takes you one to three hours to scan the disk.  After you done the scandisk, then run defragment to defragment the drive.  This may takes half or one hour to finish.  After you finish these jobs, you will see the speed have been change.

PS.  Disable screen saver and all other applications, Including the MS Office task bar.  Before you run the scandisk in this way.

I'll try that. Never did Thorough on the drive. Didn't think it needed it on a new drive. But I'm no expert so I'll accept your answer and give it a whirl. Thanks and I'll let you know what happens.
