I have an intel core 2 4400, with 4GB of ram running on XP 32-BIT SP3.
Photoshop CS3 becomes sluggish & unresponsive even after loading up small files, and this is with only Bridge open as well, plus McAffee AV.
My photos are loaded in from a USB 2 external drive, and my c: drive is used only for programs and windows itself.
Even with 4GB of RAM, i am seeing the pagefile increase to 1.6GB, whilst there appears to be 1.5GB of RAM free to use.
I've defragged the drive, with defraggler, and after that the only file reported to be fragmented was the pagefile itself.
Anyone have any ideas what i can do to improve/solve this?
