Okay well ram usually will help a little I don't know squat about the program you're referring to ?

Just add the ram in 7 home premium if you haven't already,
Hopefully you got matching ram ?
It's usually better to buy 8gb packs not separately

Could also be a AMD processor issue your looks like it uses a high Ghz

Agreed yes even though my first 2 sticks are 8 years old my new (used) sticks are the exact same sticks my processor is an AMD 3.01 x4 and works for everything else. I think I'm going to get the 8.1 Either way I would have to buy a new copy of W7 so I'll just going to roll the dice and cry later.

Why would you need another copy of win-7 ?
Put 8 or 8.1 on it's own sdd or hdd and have both
Just remove 7's hdd and install 8 on a new.

I got W8.1 and learned I can't do what I wanted, to upgrade a 32bit Vista OS to a 64 bit W8 OS. So I invision a fresh install in my future.

Thanks for all your help. One more question if I wanted could have both OS Vista 32 and W8 on the same machine? How would I need to set that up. I did it with W2000.

Yes you can set a dual boot, but you will need 2 partitions. Best is to just add a new harddisk to the PC. Then boot with the installation media and chose the new HDD as the location to install.

Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and Vista - This one is for Win7 but Win8 should be similar.

Maybe a little late but, for trying out Win7 first, actually this is possible. You can use a Win7 install - fully functional - for 30 days without activating, and later extend this by another 30 days for a total of 3 times by running a simple command. So that makes 120 days. There is even a tutorial for this in the links. But it has been removed perhaps for some reason unknown to me. So I will leave this at that and let you figure out how if you are interested. Google is your friend.
