I recently reformatted my hard drive, and to my dismay, once I had used the recovery disc, and fixed all of my settings back to what they were, my browser was acting a bit sluggish. Pages and windows slowly "peel" away, instead of closing normaly. This is true of all windows, not just those in IE. I downloaded every update and new driver available and ran a Direct-X diagnostic. All tests were succesful. I ran scan disk, and defragged, to no avail. I have 66% free system resources. Anyone have any suggestions? This has never happened before.

I'm probably stating the obvious. Have you checked the windows virtual memory setting? Have you checked that all your ram is still there? Are you running a CDrom as a slave to your hard disc. I've had problems with the cdrom somehow causing access to the hard drive to hang for ages. Do you have a really annoying memory consuming program that runs in the background (apart from Windows ).
