Well...this has come up within the last few weeks.

I was having the same problems, somewhat.

There were those who talked about defragging everyday.

I have alot of kazza stuff, so I set my defrag to "daily @ 4 a.m." and I've actually seen a bit of improvement.

Deleted a bunch of non-essential stuff and I try to reboot atleast every other day.

Have you cleared your temp files? Your Prefetch folder? Your Internet Temp Files? I do this and defrag. The result: Faster response times.

i have my temp files deleted on shutdown, and prefech is almost empty, my spu usage unless i am running seti is about 9-10 unless i load something but my pf usage is up arounf 200mb with nothing but antivirus and download measure prog, i load ie and it goes up to 250mb. this seems odd because on my laptop it is normal at 89mb and with ir, photoshop and other it is like 150mb, io am thinking htat this might be it, but why??? any one know

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
