FWIW, It's probably a good idea to avoid placing M$ products (other
than Win9x) on an audio workstation, but if you have only one computer
(like me), I understand. If by optimizing you mean Fast Indexing, this
is usually a shortcut in the startup programs folder and can be deleted...I
usually do a custom install and don't install it. Also drag "OSA" out
of startup. If you're running Win98 you can kill the office startup bar, too.
Try running msconfig and using selective startup...choose the minimal
amount of items you need to run your computer. The fewer background
processes that you have running, the more resources you'll have free
for digi audio work :-)
PS...You're totally right about the upgrade...stupid, overpriced, fluffy BS.
