Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook
Search for "Process Explorer By Mark Russinovich" on Google and you will find fine monitoring program. Run it, place it so you can see line "Interupts" (it should be bellow "System Idle Process"). Continue to work normally and if line "Interupts" occupies significant CPU load (>30%) for a few seconds (>5sec) then you probably have same problem as I.
When I experienced extreme system slow down for the first time it was because the bad blocks. The MHDD (by Dimitry Postrigan) application found them.
When bad block are located they can be avoided using some partitioning software - in my case it was "fdisk" from Slackware CD. After this intervention speed was restored to the time when I have got this laptop 8)
Well, if MHDD find something bad be happy - you have found the cause!
This was my problem last year, now I have new HDD (two moths old), and MHDD tells me that HDD is ok, but system runs very slow (even without anivirus, firewall and anti-whatever). Now I do not know what is the problem. By the way I have HP Pavilion dv8000.
Best Luck tou You all.
In this (second) case slow data transfer was due to the usage of PIO mode instead of DMA. Only way to repair this was to reinstall the Windows.

Double check your system configuration and make sure you have properly identified the HDD to the system. Your initial problem may in fact have been bad clusters on your HDD but "fdisk" is a built in dos function. I would uninstall what ever software that you may think is identifying your problem and double check your virtual memory settings and then run HP Healthcheck WHILE you have anti-virus running. Aside from deleting cookies and making sure you don't have system processes running that you don't need you can look at increasing ram and fine tuning system resources.
