My XP programs are running very slowly. The following example has win2003 excel loading and saving times in seconds: EXCEL parallels xp win xp file load time 0:09 0:06 file save time 0:18 0:03 By way of comparison, MacExcel loaded in 0:03 seconds. The following example has a windows graphing program (Golden Software's Grapher) loading and saving times in seconds: GRAPHER parallels xp win xp file load time 1:46 0:25 file load time 0:46 0:06 graph reload 0:37 0:03 change file 0:50 0:03 0:38 0:04 0:48 0:04 0:48 0:04 0:48 0:03 All files were from the same server location. Any suggestions as to ways I can speed up these programs? Thanks.
