windows 2012 server r2 running very slow

Running a windows 2012 server r2 on vmware 5.5

When I first moved over from 2003 server it was very fast everything was working great.

As far as I know nothing has changed.

Now it is running very sluggish, and smb share access is also very slow unless you re-access the same folder almost like some sort of caching issue but I believe it is all related to the server performance.

Server has 27GB Ram and 2x 1.94 processor

Any thoughts on what could be slowing down the server?

I know the issue is with File Server Resource Manager (FSRM)

its svchost.exe (SrmSVC)  just can't figure out what is causing it to constantly use 100% CPU
