    eSet caused problems with registry keys.

    What is running in the task manager? Look at CPU %.

    Look at the processes tab to see what is using the CPU the most.

    Nothing is causing the CPU to lag at that point. Monitor the CPU when it lags. 42% memory used. Can you increase your RAM to use less of the paging file?

    Does your OS and applications/data share the same drive? This can cause issues. I usually recommend three drives or arrays

    1.) OS and 128 MB paging file (max=min=128 MB)
    2.) applications / data
    3.) target for your applications and rest of your paging file (max=min=paging file remainder)

    This stops disk thrashing from applications and OS trying to access the hard drive at the same time.

    You could also get newer chipset drivers for your OS. See if newer drivers exist for hard drive controller.

    You could try going to the manufacturer's web site and getting newer chipset and controller drivers. This can some times help. If you lag is your hard drive, split up your OS, apps, and paging file on separate drives.

    Paging file is virtual memory. It reserves space on your hard drive to use swap active pages in and out of memory to conserve space.

    If your 250GB drive is same speed as your 700GB, I would consider reinstalling the operating system to the 250GB and using the other drive for apps and paging file. Do you have an external hard drive? They are worth the investment for a backup.

    I am going to bed. I have server upgrades in the morning.
