Ok, I will most likely be sitting in front of three of the four installs. Actually, two. I think my sister just disabled BOINC, or she could have removed it, IDK. My brother in CA? That will be a long talk!! Anywho, four more cpu's, at least 8 more, part time, cores, should help some. I am forgetting if my sister has hyper threading. Could be more. But thanks, Bill. Always a pleasure when you post these Pearls of computer-ism wise-ness. So, in YHO, you be thinking 6.sumptin, would be better on a W7 machine? 7.0.64 has been the most flawless version I remember ever using in my short and illustrious Crunchin career.
