1. Do you have a second hard disk? You could move the indexing to it.

2. Personally speaking I wouldnt bother with the 7100-7127 upgrade.

XP/win7 x86 build 7127

another reason why your system is bogged down is the limited amount of freespace you allow it to work with. The more clogged up your drive is, the harder it is on the indexer and the overall system performance itself. Even to do a defrag, windows wants 10-15% free just to be able to defrag.

If possible in the future, try installing just the OS itself and drivers and little such thngs, then use a different partition for program installs. Also, besides the "do not upgrade" great debate, i have another philosophy now, and thats to install the new build on a different partittion to test out before making a concrete decision if whether or not that build is worth "upgrading" to. All of this knowing of course, this is dependant on your setup and hdds and space. Just to put a nugget in your mind the next time you decide to do some hardware upgrading.

Also to the rest of you in this thread that like the 27.... what about it is "better" than the 7100?

Win7 Enterprise, Win7 x86 (Ult 7600), Win7 x64 Ult 7600, TechNet RTM on AMD x64 (2.8Ghz)

I did a search today for an old photo I thought I had on one of these 3 hard drives on this computer. The search maxxxxed out my CPU usage at 100%

I think I was only at about 50% of the 4gb of ram on the gadget

2.) Requires 16Gb free to upgrade as I found out earlier on. Had to remove some big apps whilst I did mine.
