Mine is terribly slow and nothing seems to help. I am using intel quad core w/6gigs ram and 1tb drive. Its a 4 year old Dell desktop PC. Its the "loading" I see when sorting through pics that is super slow.
Hmm...first off are you using the newest upgrade (version 4.3)?
And then have you thoroughly gone through all the suggestions online (and here) for improving performance?
If the answers are both yes, then I don't kow that there is an easy answer. Our systems can be pretty complex, with a lot of variables, and a program like Lightroom can "use" a lot of those variables. So if there is a problem with your system, it is likely acting as a "bottleneck" slowing the whole show down.
One thing you can try is to open the Task Manager, and in the Performance tab, select each process that shows you as the User, and click End Process. Then start up Lightroom and see how it behaves. Report back!
[EDIT] OK, I just saw your last post, good for you!
