That's more than possible, it's an absolute certainty, unless your home computer has all the more RAM to work with.

Why don't you post the computer specs for me to evaluate for you.
What I need is the processor speed and make and the memory bits, both RAM and graphics card

thank your for you reply,

at Work:
xp professional
intel core 2 6600 @ 2.40 GHZ
3.25 Go ram
Nvidia Geforce 6800 GPU

at Home:
vista home
Intel core 2 quad 6600 @ 2.40 GHZ
3 Go ram
Ati Radeon HD 2600 Pro

note the .25 ram dif. but the problem seems bigger than .25 ram difference.

I'm thinking switching to xp pro, do you think it would help?

Thank you

It's possible, but you might want to know in advance that it's frightfully hard to get other OSes to behave or install properly if Vista has been on a harddrive.

Try something different. See if you can find the settings for the eye candy in Vista and disable it completely. Go to the Windows Classic theme and then set up the computer for best performance, not Windows managed.

Windows Classic theme can be set via right clicking the Desktop and when you flip through the tabs, you should spot the options easily enough.

The performance option can be accessed by going to your Control Panel->System
Then click the Advanced tab and then click the Performance button (this is from memory, as I'm working on a computer with those things disabled). In there set the computer to maximise performance, not Windows managed.

See if that makes any difference.

Good luck Smiley
