Video Lag During Playback in Sequence Editor in LOR S4 Software Suite Posted February 11 11 hours ago, ~DOC~ said: New PC’s have a lot of junk installed. You could carefully started uninstalling these programs. These will bog your PC down. I had 3 types of anti virus on my new PC I bought in November and a bunch of other junk games etc. I been uninstalling these and my PC is getting faster. They put this crap on there to get you to buy in. Be careful though..... Good points Doc. I certainly agree with most of this, yet to add, it really depends on what brand of computer as to how much upselling software is on it. I usually start out with putting my own backup software on the computer and doing a complete "drive image" backup of the computer before doing anything else so I have a complete "image" of how it came. I take a snapshot of how well it performs and then start removing things I don't want. In my experience with a recently new laptop and a new show computer, I have not noticed any performance degradation with what came on them, nor any improvement by removing all the upselling software. Processors are pretty fast to begin with. I just got more space by removing the crap. Also, many programmers are not that good at removing all traces of their programs during an uninstall. Installers like InstallShield let programmers make a lot of mistakes, by leaving crap in the system registry and in the hidden "ProgramData" folder. I'm referring to Windows here and I know that Mac people are going to say it doesn't do that and is so much better than Windows, but it isn't any better in this regard. I've had years of experience programming on both.
