    i've been experiencing extreme slowdown in accessing data on my HDD (120 Gb SATA )
    the screen freezes and takes forever to open the folder, and also ends up "Not Responding" many times....
    earlier my D: was on FAT32, i changed it to NTFS, but the problem persists...
    i'm running XP with SP2...i havent made any major h/w changes recently...only installed half life 2....i'm runnung Mcafee A/V ...there r no viruses on my system
    i tried turning off the eye candy in XP, have a lot of paging file specified on a non-windows NTFS drive....problem persists

    PC configs: PIV 1.5 Ghz, VIA mobo, 512 MB DDR Ram, FX 5200 (56.72 drivers)....

    kindly help....
