    Get more ram.

    Or it could be because u have the Advanced server version, it needs more ram to run things? It thinks you're running it as a server.

    The hdd would be going constantly as it's trying to use the hdd as virtual memory (if it senses, the system is running out of physical memory), it'll use some of your hdd to make up for it. And you'll hear the hdd making noises / grinding. And I would say it'll be going as slow as a snail, if u dont do anything about it.

    Either get more ram, or reinstall another operating system.

    (NOT XP).

    You may not have enough ram to run that either.
