I just purchased an Acer Aspire V5.571 w/ 8Gig of RAM and a 750 Gig HD, i5 processor. I am seeing some horribly slow transfer rates. I copied about 3 gigs to a new NTFS partition and it took about 10 minutes. I copied about 7 gigs to a USB2 device and it took around 45 minutes!

I have McAfee Internet Security Trial on there and may just uninstall it to see if some real-time file sniffing is slowing down the thruput.

Any ideas?
