Default Pro Tools Running Extremely Slow??

Hey Guys,
I was hoping someone could give me some input on my problem.
I recently Upgraded my computers processor from an Amd Athlon 630 Quad core to a Phenom 6 core and now when I run pro tools it is impossible to do anything because the program is at a crawl. The only thing that wont lag is pressing play/stop on the session and the audio will play fine, but doing any sort of edditing or command will take forever and might cause the program to stop responding for a couple seconds. Even re-sizing tracks will take 5-10 seconds. I tried deleting databases and preferences and playing with the playback engine settings but there is no difference. I tried opening different sessions and it seems that the problem comes from using rtas plugins. Any Ideas?

Operating System
MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
AMD Phenom II X6 1055T 26 °C
Thuban 45nm Technology
4.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 666MHz (9-9-9-24)
BIOSTAR Group TA880GB+ (CPU 1) 35 °C
DELL E196FP (1280x1024@60Hz)
1024MB GeForce GTX 550 Ti (EVGA) 27 °C

Pro Tools 8 LE
Mbox 2 mini"

(EDIT): Nevermind. Pressing play will sometimes freeze the program too. And I tried opening one of the pro tools template sessions and they are just as sluggish.
