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!

Thanks for all the info ,but my son and I build our own machines and my #1 is big enough and fast enough to handle several FSX's.
I'm doing a re-install basically to rid myself of all the extra 500 or so planes and textures I don't use.
.
I also recommend CCleaner, we've used it from day 1...

Besides don't have much else to do today.

When you going to come on one of our sessions????

JT actually NO. My mother had one of my old 8mm put to video cassette and then I put it on to a DVD but I can't do the 8mm to digital by my self. I think Wolf Camera does that in the Mall though.

Yep good one also, I've been using Windows E for awhile plus Spybot and some other freeware I rotate through.

Got FSX back and is faster without all the planes, now to delete some other files and pick a few planes and try and stay under a 100...LOL

Why not pick one or two airplanes and get real good at flying them?
Personally I am jut not into jets nor heliicopters

If it isn't old and vintage, it just doesn't interest me.

I personally like the variety not just the slow stuff, prefer jets( since I actually flew backseat in a F4) over prop; no helis either

A couple I'm keeping, can't find that nice F-4 yet. It is here on one of these drives.

Almost got some bluer water, no AC carriers yet; don't know where they went...
