I have several computers that just recently became very slow. I've ran anti-virus scan - clean. I ran anti-spyware - clean. Here is the symptoms. I power on the computer (Windows 2000 but also happens on Windows 98) It boots up and I login. It finishes the bootup, I turn on task man to watch my cpu usage which never goes beyond 3%, but my hard drive light light is solid and I can hear it working on something. Whatever the HD is "crunching on" I can't fine. I launch WORD, which takes 3-4 minutes. I try to type and the letters appear secopnds after I've typed them. By this time the computer has been up for 10 minutes. Then all of the sudden the HD activity stops and WORD and all other apps work great. Then, at what seams to be random times, the HD activity goes full again but task man still shows no CPU usage. This happens whether I have the netowk cable plugged in or not (thus ruling out Internet activity)
Is there some software program I can install to see what my HD is doing?
