No processes consuming all sources,Ok, 2GB main memory, but how about
- a process that consumes all resources
- updates installed
- the size of the swapfile/virtual memory
- upgrade from a clean install of the previous version?
I have installed al updates, it took three hours, the laptop is working reasonably well now,
I do wonder if anyone has any recommendations on what services I might want to disable from 'automatic' startup. I realise these are usually for peoples own unique circumstances.
At present after startup cpu usage is 1% so thats great, HDD usage 1%, however on the memory front 1.2gb is in use and the pc has only started up. its says 45MB of memory is compressed??? cached is 795mb, paged pool is 158,b non paged is 97mb, total paging file is 1152mb, this was a clean install.
Tomorrow I will look to install virtual box, can I expect win xp to run v slowly in virtual box or will it get proper access to hardware?
Thank you for all of your help everyone.
