Cool. Thats an improvement. The other 0.2 GHz in probably being used by hardware still. Now I think you should rerun the WEI test. You might see an improvement.

Well, they're still being used technically, and I doubt you will need it. If you took it away from you graphics card or whatever hardware is using it, you will see a general decreases in performance.

The score you see above your system specs. Its grayed out because you need to rerun it. Click the number, then click re-run assessment.

EDIT: click the link beside the number, not the number itself. Sorry bout that.

Ohhh gotcha, so if i checked those two boxes again the (number of processor and the maximum memory) would my RAM drop again? I thought having those boxes checked helped the performance as well as startup, i might be wrong

That is a common mis-perception that I believed at one time as well. I found it was actually better to leave both unchecked. Most people say it doesn't matter at all. Either way, the best think to do is leave them alone. They are only meant to be used for debugging purposes, which you aren't trying to do.

Well that I didn't know. I always tried to get into msconfig and uncheck all unnecessary startup applications, then go into the Boot option and check those 2 boxes, hoping my computer would run or even start any faster.
