I am running Win 7 Ultimate on a ASUS P8Z68 mobo with an Intel i7 2600K processor. Every once in a while when I click on Windows Explorer, my system would suddenly bog down like it's running in molasses on a cold day.
To further indicate this problem, I've had this problem before on my older computer configuration (M4A78 with an AMD CPU) before I upgraded to the Intel configuration. I've had this problem before upgrading from Win XP Pro to Win 7. I've yet to find the cause of this problem looking in Task Mgr on Apps and processes. Even with all applications closed down, the computer is still very slow, and I'm forced to reboot.
Can anyone provide me any idea or know where I can find the solution to this problem?
