Have you installed any programs/apps or made any major changes to your OS between the time your system performed ok and when it started to slow down?
When you open up Task Manager, look under the Processes
tab, do u notice any of the processes taking up an inordinate amount of CPU/Memory usage? ...do these numbers gradually increase?
Look under the Performance
tab, describe what you see for PageFile Usage (disp. as PF Usage).
In addition, have you checked the website for Soulseek
for any recent patches/downloads? Have you tried contacting the creators of this software and try to troubleshoot this problem with them (in finding out if this is an error with their software -- I doubt it, but it's worth a shot)?
Also, I'm unsure how you have your pagefile configured and I don't know how much RAM you have (this info would be helpful)...but, I'd like you to Read this article
as it will show you how to optimize your Pagefile
for Maximum Performance and may end up solving your problem in the meantime.
Keep us posted.
