Sometimes you call the machines maker and find out they have a new bios, patch or driver. Then again this is Windows so being what it is you just reboot during the day and carry on. Here the reboot is under 1 minute so I can do that during a coffee break.
There are newer faster machines with Quad Core, more GHz and RAID drives. Is this issue pressing enough to move to better faster gear?
We are using the XP O/S for web site development, but find working with ColdFusion and DreamWeaver VERY slow.
Executive software?s Diskeeper automatically runs every night and we have 25% of free space.
The computer has 3600 of ram memory
The XP firewall is turned off.
Any suggestion on how to have a faster system, instead of rebooting the computer twice a day would be appreciated.
The same slowness occurs on the graphic machine using Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop.
