Our server performs very slow sometimes takes ages to do any thing at all. When you open the task manager there are only 8 processes running and the CPU shows 10 to 20% as soon as you launch internet explorer it jumps to 95 to 99% and works very slowly. in task manger on the performance tab the PF (page File Usage is showing 415 MB to 420MB but the PF graph does not show anything it is completely blank). We have Sophos running and I installed Spybot to check for worms, there are no viruses or anything. The spec of the server is as follows:
- Intel(R)Xeon CPU 3.00GHz,
- 2GB of RAM
- 80GB hard drive partitioned to 2 with (30GB For the C drive where server 2003 is installed)
There are only 4 software packages installed on this server:
- Speed Step
- Edixcel Online Testing software (which came to a halt last Thur because the server was performing slowly)
Please let me know if you have a clue why this may be happening as you can see the spec of the server is not too bad.
