This problem has been bugging me for a long time, however i don't do many installs so i guess it would be ok. But im tired of it. Every time i install a game, the computer goes unresponsive or really slow, i can barely click taskbar buttons to switch apps, and when i click it takes some time to show up. It's like the resources are all focused on the installation. I do defrag my drive, i have 50GB space left (Drive is 250GB) and running SATA2. However when downloading Steam games there's no slowdowns or anything like that, it's just fine. So my guess is that this must be HDD related. It has always been like this for the years i have the HDD, so it is not damaged because there's no BSOD or any kind of errors. Also, this happen with those big zip demo files that i have to extract so i can install the demo. When extracting it happens the same. I'm not sure what to do, change Pagefile, System Settings Thanks in advance. PS: System specs on the left.
