Why is a clean Windows 7 install is slow.

After I did a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate, the system runs slow. It takes a long time to install programs & runs slugish. I have a new Seagate 1.5 terabyte hard drive, Intel q9400, 4 gigs Patriot Viper memory, Zotac GeForce 480 video card, X-Fi Falaity Titainium sound card, Pioneer Blue ray burner, Sony dvdrw, Thermaltake Spedo full tower case. The temperatures are fine. If you have any questions just ask.
Thanks Ed

Dear Ed,

after first startup of a fresh installed Windows 7, most likely the indexer is busy indexing your system and may slow it down until completed.

Kind regards,
Soren

If it's right after the clean install, this issue might be MB-related.
Check your configs for frequency to see if there's any incompatibility of speed or voltage.

I can only think of MB right now.
What model?
Have you installed the correct driver for the chipset and all other base-drivers for your system?

Take a good look on the performance tools from MS.
Go to Start > Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools > Performance Monitor.
There you might add or remove monitors for HD, memory and everything else.
It might be a good place to start.

On the other hand, I'd say to you that I've seen many illegal Windows 7 install and some of them use cracks that would cause the system to go really slow.
I won't say if that is or not your case, just saying that it is also a reason for this.

But I would stick with the Performance Monitor and try to figure out what would be the cause for this.
