That is a good catch. And FS9 would fit on a card set up with 4G.

What got me is this statement: "With a Western Digital Raptor, you can go from the boot menu to the Windows desktop in 14.06 seconds;"

I guess that means with no NIC or virus/firewall program or special graphics card suite, like Catalyst, installed. I know my system takes a lot longer than 14 seconds to boot up.

Nothing

Its most probably just some sluggish software loading
And the longer you use Windows the slower it gets as the regestry gets added to
Radar had a link to a utillity called Regvac which will clean up the regestry and give you a little speed boost (will post link when I find it Rolling Eyes )
Check to see what programs are loading every time you start and dissable those you dont need

You can also use Advanced Unistaller.It contains a very decent start up manager. Arrow

I use something called Registry Mechanic. It's like taking vitamins, I can't tell if it's really doing anything or not. The most guilty parties always seem to be the network interface card, which takes awhile to initialize--don't know why (and the one I'm using now is actually built into the m'board)--and the virus software. I'm using Norton Internet Security now but Mcafee's equivalent used to take its time, also. It's something I've just learned to live with.

TTT mentioned regvac http://www.superwin.com/regvac.htm

Use it free for 30 days but use it in the NOVICE mode, that way you don't take any chances of screwing up your registry.
I've found it to be very safe, I think you will also.
