I've noticed this start to happen about a week ago. Whenever I unpack some type of .rar or multi-volume .rar file for, let's say a media file or game, the time it'll take will be anything from 15min-30min just for a 1GB or smaller file. I thought this was just a single file but it has been doing this to everything I uncompress now. Before, it'd be only seconds or a couple of minutes, for even 10GB+, 100% completely and officially legal*, Blu-ray quality files. I tried doing this without anything open and I still get the same thing. No memory is used up, no processing power is being used at all, and I've scanned my computer with multiple programs, including stick-up-the-ass Norton. I just did a 3GB file earlier, and it took roughly 27 minutes to uncompress an 8-part file. I'm getting a bunch of blanks here, could anybody figure this out?
