Just out of curiosity, Is task manager showing much activity when you login to windows? Have a look under the Performance Tab.

Do you have the same issues in safe mode?

Did you install all your system drivers?

Actually my hard drive space is still big,...and also i have fresh or clean installation of my O.S
