have reported adding more RAM made life go a lot better. For me, I
found 256 to be cheap to buy, and a real life saver pretty much across
the board for all Windows applications. (512 is nice if you can get it,
but I doubt that you will need it.)
What kind of machine is it? I was getting acceptable speed on a P2/400,
but what I considered good enough might not be what others want.
Also, only load those sources that you need - for example, loading the
PHB, DMG, and basic FR campaign settings made things go much, much
faster than loading everything.

I recommend it to all Windows users who don't already have a virus scanning
