is there anyway to have 32 bit and 64 OS on the same harddrive? Im thinking of getting the 32 bit and testing to see if I have the same random slowdown problems.

Yes (http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...e-8a3ca1b2c994), but I have 64 bit with steam and my computer has no slowdown. Although you can go into steam settings and force it not to load upon startup. Whenever I start steam on my computer, it opens very quickly but takes maybe 4-8 seconds to open a game (not a long time).

If you use 32bit, 4GB of your RAM will basically be wasted. 64bit IS faster, but I recommend some more testing from these excellent folks to truely find out what the problem is. You could always try a reinstall as a last resort.

Make sure you have installed all drivers and important windows updates

Steam, even manually started, is extremely slow in general. I know my cpu and gpu drivers are up to date, and Ill check to see if there are any windows 7 updates available.

Interesting, I use Your Uninstaller to uninstall programs, and I find no traces of Soluto. A Guy
