Problem with Vista disk access reducing program performance massively RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • OK,

    I have a high end machine 4Gb RAM, 8800 GTS, 2x500 Gb fast disks, a due core 3GHz CPU and minimal software loaded. My problem is that the disk continually accesses for like 10 to 15 minutes+ post boot on Vista, this means my applications run dreadfully slowly and look REALLY REALLY poor at machine turn on, sometimes the database accesses can time out due to the excessive vista disk access.

    Explorer takes 20+ seconds to load, normally sub-second post the disk blues. Visul Studio takes forever. .Net loading is a joke. And I like all of these things when they run well.

    Does anyone have any solutions to my disl woes other than going to XP?
