Very slow Geoprocessing

Dear all,

I do have a serious problem here. Until recently everything was fine except from the usual things that bother everyone... Since yesterday my geoprocessing is terrible slow. It already starts when filling in the paths in the batch form of my model. A very simple thing, a selection by attributes. I need the input file, an SQL query and the output file. To fill in the path tho the input file and type the SQL statement, all no problem. However, when I go through the lines to fill in the path of the output file the form doesn't react in the first place, then it tells me that it is not responding and then it isn't able to refresh the canvas of the table in the batch form. Hence, I have to move the window out of the visible area of my screen, pull it back and the content is visible again. This is ridiculous!

After all that I start the geoprocessing and it is also terrible slow!

I checked the workspaces if there is any scrap left... nothing. The default database is empty the workspace folder is empty... I went through the install routine to repair ArcGIS - nothing changed! Server restarted - nothing changed!

My setup:

Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise (64-bit)
Service Pack 1
AMD Opteron Processor 6136 2.40 GHz
RAM: 32 GB

ArcGIS 10 (ArcInfo license)
Service Pack 3

Any other suggestions than changing the GIsystem?
