So... yea. Should I just re-format, and make it SUPER minimal, as in.. .remove everything/anything that can be eating my delicious memory?

AutoCAD is a really intense program. At my school, when we use the AutoCAD suite of softwares, we run ATI/AMD FirePro cards, with 8 GB of ram, and I think some sort of Quad core processors...

But really, anything to cut-down and make my laptop faster would help.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1

Here are some tips I found, they both worked for my netbook:

Disable search indexing:

* Right Click the “Computer” Icon in the desktop and select “Manage”.
* Click “Services and Applications” in the “Computer Management” window.
* Click on “Services”.
* You can see a lot of services listed there. Look for “Windows Search” in that.disable search indexing in Windows 7 Speed Up Windows 7 Ultimate Guide To Make Windows 7 Blazing Fast!!!
* Right Click on “Windows Search” from the list and choose “Properties”.
* The “Windows Search Properties Window” will open up. From “Startup type” click on the drop down menu and choose “Disabled”.
* Click “Apply” then “OK” and that’s it. The Windows 7 Search Indexing Feature is now disabled.

Most of the Windows 7 users do less searches in there system. The Search Indexing service in Windows 7 will index keeps track of the files so that they can be found quickly when asked at some other time. This feature is useful only if you perform frequent searches on your system.
For occasional file searchers the Search Indexing service in Windows 7 is a total resource hog. It unknowingly eats up your system resources. What you need from windows 7 is maximum performance from it then i would certainly recommend you to disable this resource hogging Windows 7 Search Indexing Feature.

Change the Power Plan To Maximum Performance

* Double click the ” Power Options ” in the Control panel.
* Click the down arrow showing ”Show Additional Plans” to see the
”High Performance” power plan

* Now just activate the ” High Performance ” plan and that’s it.
* You may go for the advanced settings for further tweaking if you want.

The Power settings in Windows 7 is not automatically set for maximum performance.
By default the power plan in Windows 7 is set for a balanced performance with energy consumption on hardware. So you may not get the optimal performance from windows 7 if this is the case. So we need to change the power plan to High Performance Mode.
