Hello all! I have an HP G62 340US laptop upgraded to Win 7 Ultimate (runs very fast - normally). I also bought a brand new 1.5 TB desktop drive (Seagate) from Fry's Electronics @ San Diego. When I connected the two to back up my stuff (the first time the desktop drives been used), me computer complied for the first 20 GB's, and then everything slowed down to a crawl. I disconnected the DD (desktop drive), and restarted the computer. It was still extremely sluggish even w/out the DD attached. I've run a virus scan (paid AVG), I've fixed registry errors (paid AVG Tuneup), and nothing helps.

A couple of things that I've noticed in the past with mine:

1) Sometimes the cable can cause slowness (I had a 320GB that slowed everything down until I switched out to a new cable)
2) Remote Differential Compression -

Remote Differential Compression: measures the changes in files over a network to transfer deltas with minimal bandwidth rather than transferring an entire file that has previously been moved. Because it constantly checks for file changes, this service can hinder system performance.

To disable this service:

Open Control Panel
Switch to Classic View
Select Program Features
Choose Turn Windows features on and off
Scroll down and uncheck Remote Differential Compression

Thank you so much! This worked great! I didn't have to change the cable though (USB 3.0). Thank you so much for your help!
