Windows 2003 server hesitates causing delays and slowdowns

I have a Windows 2003 SP2 server that when accessing files and switching programs, lags between operations. I have watched the Task Manager processes and utilization screens and everything looks normal. I have adjusted Windows performance settings and does not seem to make a difference. Random users are complaining about delays and log on time issues. Looked at drive space, memory settings, network load, processor load, and workstation connections and memory...no problems found. Any ideas.

Looks like it may be a temperature problem. The memory DIMMS are running very hot. Might be a cooling fan or dust problem. Am checkiing now and will let you know. FYI: it's not virus related. I thought of that first and ran a virus scan with several tools. Nothing came up.

Thanks,
