mars, I was talking about TURBO BOOST for my i5 processor. It is disabled by default and I can enable it at the services section in computer management. Would it help? Also, I have a 8GB sony flash that is READY BOOST compatible so i'll use that too.

My bad. Seems like my one remaining brain cell suffered from stack overflow.

I would definitely recommend enabling Turbo Boost. Once enabled it will kick in on an as needed basis. Anything that can boost performance is a plus IMO.

One caution, however. Turbo Boost (when engaged) can dramatically increase operating temperature so make sure you have good ventilation.

Go to Start and type in resmon, that will show you what Windows 7 is doing with your ram. Don't fool with it just look. If you are using a lot of ram check out msconfig from Start and un-check programs you don't need at start up. Windows 7/32 should run quite well with 4 gigs of ram when set up properly. Get back to us on your findings.

You might get it back using a restore point. You can also check in the Recycle Bin and restore it. Now to get back to your first post. Any computer using CAD (which some how you forgot to mention before) will need a lot of memory (ram) to work properly. Which IMHO requires Windows 7/64 and more ram.
