Unix & Linux Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Linux, FreeBSD and other Un*x-like operating systems.. It's 100% free, no registration required.

So I have a brand new Samsung laptop and recently did away with Windows! I installed Fedora 18 and all was good for a while.

Recently EVERYTHING is slow as can be, Internet downloads you name it is slow.

I have run Bleachbit a few times and still slow...I'm not sure what's going on, I ran top in my terminal and 2 things are listed multiple times: kworker and watchdog I have no idea what either are.

Also I took a peek at my disks and I don't know but it looks a little off to me! I am unable to upload an image so please see it at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bostonstrong/9285396677/
