    I found that ironic that he talks about MySQL - which is owned by Oracle - a little while ago I read an article saying basically the same thing about MySQL! Basically you should use use SQLite as MySQL is too feature bloated.

    For education which runs Microsoft Windows, MS SQL Express makes sense. If you run linux, it wouldn't.

    No LOLs - this is a serious thread.

    Is your antivirus tuned to not examine reads on your data/log drives or files?

    This is Symantec, but the principles are the same.

    Virus is installed and maintained by LA. I have no access to the settings which apparently are the same for all schools in the area.

    I will order some memory and post back next week

    Hang on, they have SQL 2008 R2 standard, a primary school, with 4GB ram? WTF?!

    I'd get the LA to look, could be the LDF has grown, could be a long disc queue length which point to a duff disc. Log it with them, if it's a duff disc you don't want to be wasting time waiting for people to post on a forum with ideas. Would take 10mins of a remote support session to find the problem rather, what is it now, half a day and count.

    LA will not help as they no longer fully support the school but still support offsite backups and virus systems as the school pay them for these services separately. Previously they were under contract to look after the schools network + servers, hence LA installed servers but no longer.

    This is why I don't like pick and mix services. I'd start by assuming the server hdd is duff assuming nothing has changed. Check event viewer for bad blocks and such errors, then when it's not hdd you'll be jumping for joy.

    You think that is bad. I powered up an old server I found in the school which had full SQL, 2gb ram and 10gb c drive. The thing was trashing the HDD just logging on.

    The Dell raid software should report any HDD issues when I login and also by email. I will check the logs etc.
