Windows 7 sooo slow copying files..

My W7 HP system on my laptop is getting slower and slower at copying/deleting files..

81/2 minutes to empty the recycle bin of 1.69 GB 4100 files is an example, making a copy of a folder runs at just 3MB/sec.

Never had a problem with the RC or Beta.. it's like Vista was before SP1.

Do you have enough space on your HD?
try also and see CPU usage from task manager, could be that a spyware or a virus is killing your machine!

You said it's getting slower, so it was fast before, right?
If so then it wouldn't be a driver issue unless you've maken some update after which the problem began!

Any way if it is not the AHCI driver or the chipset driver, which you are advised by the way to update anyhow, then I would go for a nice defragmentaion of the HD.

Are you using some encrypting decrypting software or anything? Have you tried disabling antivirus and antispyware if installed!?

Yes tried all that :-) , maybe it's my imagination that it's BECOME slower, I have dual boot XP/W7 and maybe it's just that XP is much much faster.

Your system is not bad at all!
It should handle win7 with no problem ,harsware speaking!
Please check the UAC to see if it is not strict or something!
What Anti-Virus are you using?
Try killing killing processes from Task Manager to see if anything special is overloading the system
you can do that while monitoring cpu and ram usage also from TM.
