I have 3GB RAM and plenty of disk space and page file space, but still sometimes switching from one program to another is painfully slow. I would like to do something about it. Which Windows 7 system parameters control program launch speeds/initialization? Are any usefully adjustable? Is there a memory/process parameter tuning procedure I can apply to improve this?
When Windows 7 is running well, it’s fine, but unpredictably it’s a pain in the neck, taking a-a-a-ages to switch from one program to another. I have increased the page file to much larger than it really needs to be, and mostly Task Manager doesn’t show the processor (Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E8200 @ 2.66GHz) exceptionally busy.
Does anyone have any advice to offer?
