An OS would help. Sad

Add RAM!

I suggested you use a "real time" defragmentation program and a RAM optimizer on your PC, along with some fan software. Use the fan software after periods of long or heavy use or during indexing of the hard drive (during virus scans or any program that searches all of your files and folders on a hard drive.)

Sorry, the OP hasn't posted in these forums since Sept. 2006, so I don't think you're going to get a response.

Hope this helps.
