Surprising slow down

The other day I was looking at Task Manager on my girlfriends computer. I sorted the tasks by Page Fault delta and noticed that sidebar was constantly in the hundreds. I found this to be odd, because the sidebar on my Vista machines were never this bad. Thinking of what was differnet between our sidebars I figured the only possible gadget could be the analog clock, which is a default gadget. I ask for permission and then removed the analog clock from the side bar. Instantly sidebar stopped page faulting. As a result her computer has become a little more responsive. No wonder everyone finds Vista so slow. By default when doing nothing it’s constatntly page faulting.
