I am running a Phenom II x6 1055T processor on an MSI 880 GM-E41 board. The computer is running so slow that I suspect either:
1. The Processor is only using 1 channel - I have to wait sometimes for 10 seconds for, say, the Windows Live Mail icon to show, let alone complete, but the Task Manager shows only 17% utilisation (by one of the svchost.exe progs.)! I note that 17% is about one sixth of the total processing capacity!!
2. Something has corrupted the processor protocol?
3. There is some prog. running which is interfering with proper processing?
For info. I am using the Windows Firewall, the Free AVG anti-virus, and Malware Bytes anti-malware(not running all the time, but only when I call it)
Could any one help, at all, please?
