    Hi all.

    I've just grabbed a new Vista PC, dual core 2.6, 4gb ram, 8800 gtx etc.

    All in all compared to my old p4 xp box it just seems decidedly slow.

    I've upgraded my nvidea card driver to junes and that seems to have helped a little but everything is just plain very mediocre compared to my old xp box.

    On my old XP box i can open photoshop from scratch in 4.5 seconds, on the new all singing all dancing vista box it's taking over 16 seconds, it's just plain annoying.

    I have the same with Dreamweaver as well.

    Are there any basic things I should be checking ?
