Was there a Windows 9 ?
I am using Windows 8 but I can't say I like it.
Instead of going forwards I am thinking of going backwards ....I liked Vista and XP
No they decided to skip Windows 9. Probably a blatant piece of number discrimination.
I thought no one liked Vista. XP was good but 7 works better - just slower.
Get a 4Gb memory stick, shove it in one of the spare USB ports in the back of the computer then go into properties for that drive. You will see a tab marked Readyboost. Activate it and you should see a performance increase as it will use the drive as extra memory. ta will try that
It didn't do a lot for me, I tried it some time ago...
Best thing you can do to speed up Window$ is install the operating system on a SSD - they are cheap as chips now....
I couldn't see how an external essentially Flash drive could be faster than an HDD with a cache and less buffers between it and the CPU cache but hey ho
SSD drives seem to still be a bit pricey (the Notebook I mostly use only cost me £120) but they will take over from HDDs soon. In effect it's what smart phones and tablets already use
