What kind of machine are you running WJ?
How many gigs of memory?
You have something slowing your machine down

What kind of anti virus are you running?
Mc Afee, Norton, will just drag your machine down if you have them.

Best anti-virus is Microsoft Security Essentials, it is free, updates easily and will not slow your machine down.
McAfee and Norton will big time!

How many non-essential programs are on your PC?
Eliminate everything you don't need

You'd be surprised how certain programs put the "brakes" on your machine" or are memory hogs.

After my IT buddy taught me to eliminate a lot of crap, FSX loads and is ready to play in 7 to 10 seconds.

I can change airplanes almost as fast
It isn't the FSX program causing your problems, its elsewhere.

This includes programs you don't need, and go into "downloads" and clean it out also!
You'll be surprised how much faster your machine will run.
Go in to control panel and eliminate and delete unneeded files, etc. Then run defrag on your machine 3 times, not just once, 3 times!!!
It WILL make a difference!

After that clean your machine thru control panel once aweek, and run a defrag at least doing one defrag once a week.

There's a great free cleaning program called CCleaner you can download and use. It works great and my IT buddies highly recommend it!
