Sorry if this reads like a noob question, but I have used SlimServer for a number of years with almost no problems and fast response times to all actions.

However... recently updated to the Slimcenter version and oh dear, all is not well. It now takes ages to load every time I open a browser (it is one of my default load pages in IE 7.0), adding songs to the now playing list used to be instantaneous, it is now interminably slow, and worst of all iexplore now hangs on to (roughly) 200+ Mb of system memory making everything else run slow.

I dont have a top spec PC, but it is not exactly slow normally, and installing SlimCenter is the only thing changed.

Has anyone else experienced this, and can anyone give me a better solution than uninstall and reinstall an older version of SlimServer (as opposed to SlimCenter).

Any help gratefully received.

If yours is a Windows system, have a look at the info here and check that it is not the cause of your performance problems

Thanks for the response bigfool, but I do not think the recording drive is the issue here.

Sorry I should have been clearer, Windows can also hit your hard disk with this problem, in which case the whole machine slows to a crawl, especially when accessing large files, such as flacs.

I have suffered this problem a number of times, which is why I shared the info. Did you actually check? It only takes a minute.

Having said that, it is by no means the only possibility.
