I have a computer with Windows 7 Professional and a GTX 460 card. The Windows 7 animation have been running slowly over the past couple of days. I'm not sure what it is. I thought it was the Nvidia card or HDD but when I ran the Windows Experience Index it came out HIGHER than before for the HDD (and stayed at 7.9 for the graphics card). This problem has been happening for the past month. It goes away when I do an F8 and choose "Last Known Good COnfiguration" but that did not work this time. The computer runs the same as before except when it comes to games, videos, and Aero. I think this problem may have started when I upgraded the Nvidia video drivers last month but I'm not 100% positive. Any help would be appreciated... EDIT: I would also like to add that the POST process also slows to a crawl whenever this happens as well. And this is before the computer even boots into Windows.
