some code monkey that uses predominantly C++ on windows platforms.

have worked for companies such as ntl broadcast(an ex UK Telco now renamed and nothing to do with CATV) Honeywell (an experience never to be repeated) and McLaren Electronics, doing whizzy F1 telemetry type stuff (cool!) now works in a small place, producing legal Database UI software while trying to think up an interesting handheld game concept or trying to hack some hardware beyond recognition.

it seems (from the user manual) it's called "expansion" in the menu. and the icon is of a magnifying glass with a '+' inside. options are 'Full' and 'Aspect' (and possibly 'off'?) change this setting and see if it affects the results in the way you are looking for

comment Intel i7 2600 or i5 2500 for development machines?
this might be much better off re-phrased and over on Programmers.SE e.g. Ask "does the Hyperthreading (as opposed to real core count) on i7's contribute significantly to C# build times?"
