I was just curious if anyone else noticed a slow down with either of these products. Cursor XP makes my computer run very slow, and it "loses" things. I don't quite know how to explain that, you'll just have to take my word for it. By the way I do love Cursor XP, but can't use it. As for rainlender, it slows my computer, and when I try to watch my TV, I have to stop it. I have found some very good replacements for Rainlender, so that's not a big problem. Just curious if it was me or other people too. Thanks.

Haven't had a problem with either program.

CursorXP uses about 2mb of ram on my system and rainlendar uses about 7mb. How much RAM do you have. That could make a big difference. Im running about a gig or so on mine, so 9mb is nothing to my system. But if you have 256 or under it could make a big difference. WinXP needs almost all of that 256 just to run. If you want to start adding memory resident goodies you might need to get more RAM.

Ryvon Pretty much pegged it..XP is a memory hog as it is..the more stuff you run, the more RAM your gonna need..Cant wait to see how Longhorn does in the memory dept. Probably will even require more..::laughs:: Ah well..

I dunno... When I was running a 128Meg system (long ago and far away) I still never had any real trouble with slowdowns. But depending on what ELSE you have running... I have a half gig now, so no problems at all now. Very rare for a freeze up.
