RE: vista speed problems
Did anyone ever solve this?? It's 18 months since Greg posted this, but I
can't find a solution anywhere. My PC waits for 6, 12, or 18 seconds on
almost every mouse click - and it then recalibrates the floppy disk(!) - it
makes Vista completely unusable. I've got all the latest patches. FYI, I
have 32-bit Vista Business u/g installed on an HP w8000 workstation with dual
1.7GHz Xeons and 1GB RAM (the most it can take). Pagefile.sys is on a
separate hard disk. I've done battle with Vista for 4 months over this, and
really think I've got to go back to XP.
