Adding a win. user - affects performance?

Hi!

I am having an old (3 yrs) lptp (hp pavilion g6) and want to do some music editing work. nothing fancy just a hobby.

Seeing as my lptp is a bit sluggish as it is, i thought of creating a "music" user for better performance when i do the music editing.

Is this the right thing to do?

Thnx man..

It would'nt make a difference.

Possibly buy an external Harddrive, to put all your music on it

@HarriePateman
Thanks for your quick reply1

I wasn't talking about the music gigs, rather the poor performance i get when i use the software (ableton, cubase etc.)

Let the CPU breath better

Making a new account wouldn't improve performance.

Adding RAM Would help ECT...

If you could fill in your system Specs, i will be more then happy to help you.
