SLOW Starts
Most of the programs on my computer funtion well. Like as in I initiate them and really quick they load. But some programs like Photoshop or frehand take ages to start> I click and like 3-5 min later they start to show signs of loading. Flash loads quick. Any ideas would be apriciated.

Tried defragging the hard disk?

Danrok, does defragging serously improve performance, oh and ordered another WD400JB so maybe in a couple of days you help me set up raid??? :evil:

it does seriously improver performance, depending on how much time has passed since your last defrag.

Razorfish 8th July, 2004 12:45 AM

Might just have to do it then, its been about a month since my fresh install of windows XP

See how fragged the files are when you start it defragging (it will tell you before it starts). That way you can work out how often it needs to be done.

I'll help you in any way I can to setup RAID.

Thanks danrok, just you managed to sort out my western digital problems, so setting up raid must be no problem. ill PM you some time okay???
