I have a Windows computer, with a Seagate 1 TB drive as my C drive. The drive is about 6 years old.
Starting yesterday, my computer is running extremely slow.
When I look at the task manager, the CPU usage fluctuates between 0% and 1%.
I ran Symantec Quick-Scan and no viruses were found.
When I try to open windows explorer, it takes about 30 seconds to open, when ususally it appears in under 2 seconds.
There are no other programs running.
I did run Seagate Sea Tools, quick test of the hard drive, and no problem was found.
What could be the cause of the computer / internal disk drive to run slow?
