We upgraded our workstation from XP Pro on an AMD6400 3.3G dual processor with 4G Ram to a Windows 7 Pro 64 bit on a AMD965 3.4 quad 8G Ram (tired of the out of memory errors). No overclocking or any changes to the BIOS.
Although I did expect it to be faster did not expect it to be twice as slow.
MSIE 8 takes about 5 secs and load to google. On my OLD AMD2800 1.5G it takes 1 sec.
A large VB6 compile of a on the XP AMD6400 takes 20 secs (the source is on the win7 machinee) but takes 50 secs on the Win7 machine.
Everything just seems slower on win7.
How can I speed it up?
So far Win 7 has been a big disappointment. But nobody takes credit on the commercials saying it was their idea:-)
