    #### SOLVED ... SEE SECOND POST ####

    Hi Everyone,

    Not sure if this is the right place to ask this question.

    I am on W7 Pro 64 and I have eset32 and mbam installed.

    I have this bizzare problem that started recently where my whole system will lock on file operations for up to 5 seconds on average. It appears to happen on new files being written or copied.

    I thought it was because files were being scanned so I tried turning off eset and it made no difference.

    I then thought it might be an SSD issue of health so I checked that and there are no issues there.

    I have no other ideas on troubleshooting this and would appreciate any tips on what might be causing this.

    Thanks
    S

    Ok... i figured this out with a bit of thinking.

    I rebooted into safe mode... tested to see if the issue existed. It didn't. So it had to be a program or app.

    I booted back into normal and turned off everything from booting. Rebooting I could see that it was still there.

    I then checked the programs running and picked them off one by one until I got a normal file copy instantly.

    It was rocketdock.exe which was a tool that i used for quick access to programs. I uninstalled the program, turned back on everything and rebooted again.

    All works perfectly : )

    Hope this helps others.

    This issue is closed.
