    My HD keeps slowing down (big time)... I did a scan disk, defrag, disk clean, disabled startup programs... but it doesn't help...

    Even after I do a defrag, like 2 or 3 days later I have to do it again cause its gets very fragmented... I don't know whats going on... its a new hd..

    My specs:

    AMD 1200 mhz
    384 ram
    40 gig hd
    NVidia video card
    sound blaster

    Is a fast computer so I don't know why its slowing down so much.

    Any ideas?

    I'd run a full virus scan (make sure you have the latest definitions). You might also run ad-aware. And check in msconfig to see if there's anything starting that you aren't aware of.
