    Have a look on Task Manager it shows you what programs are using what % of the computer speed so you can shut down anything that's eating up space to ease up the strain on whatever you're using.

    Hey,

    Vista by defaults uses a lot of stupid services.
    You can tweak this following this guide :

    http://www.speedyvista.com/services.php

    The Windows search service (necessary for indexing your hard drive) can eat a lot of sys ressources so be sure to shut it down. As you can see there are a lot of other services to disable.

    I did that on my Macbook Pro and now Vista works like a charm.

    Hope that helps,

    Possibly. He was asking around for your address too. Shrug.
