Few days ago my computer started to run very slow. E.g. Opening a program, even it takes time for the start menu to open from when I click on it if it allowed me. It takes few minutes to respond or even 10 to 15 minutes sometimes

Tried updating windows 7. Reformatted computer 2 weeks ago.
Tried searching this forum or google no results.

Specs
CPU: Core i7 950
motherboard: Gigabyte X58A-UD3R rev. 2
PSU: Corsair Hx-850
GPU: nivdia 570 – gigabyte n570so-13I
Optical drive: Lite-On IHAS324
OS: windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit
RAM: Corsair CMT6GX3M3A2000C8 6GB (3x2GB) Dominator GT
HD: 2 * Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ

I heard it maybe ram problems but I have no idea how to check and I do not know on what voltage and or frequency should I set my ram in Bios

Thanks for the help

No

Yes my antivirus is up to date


Firefoxe is using my largest amount of memory around 600,000 to 720,000K
closed it no difference


i did this as well, i have a program running called "jmb36x" have no idea what it is
 
jmb36x is a jmicron RAID controller .
According to google
you could try killing the process in task manager and see what happens , but dont stop it starting till you try that

720K is MASSIVE for firefox , unless you have 30 - 40 tabs open it shouldnt be anywhere near that high .
I'd uninstall firefox and reinstall a fresh download
