18 Jul 2010   #11


my cpu is a intel celeron and i run 64 bit version of windows but i have 3gb of ram and only have my anti virus start up no other programs and i delete my temp files often so it can't be the processor it's the ram or temp files.

Windows 8 Pro / Windows 7 Home Premium x64 dual boot

While yes ram is an important part of running Windows 7 and I do not think 1 GB is enough to get the whole experience although my sons desktop runs 7 on 1.25 Gigs of ram and runs slick as snot and the only thing he does not have is the aero option but he does not seem to mind.

I have a Dell laptop that runs Vista and the shutdown process on that too is painstakingly slow and can take quite sometime to shut down , although I have never investigated it because the only thing I use it for is work , so it could be a Dell issue too ? could it not ?
