    I am stuck with a really annoying 500mhz processor and 700mb films are well out of my enjoyment range since they stutter and all kinds of crap, if I re-encode it takes ages... BESIDES getting a better processor can anyone give me any tips on anything to help with this? I have 512ram

    go on to desktop, right click properties, settings, change color quality to medium (16 bit) will make the color less but the film should run smoothly

    i run a 350mhz and i dont have problems with my color settings on the highest. I play 700mb avi dvd rips with no problems at all. Try to make sure no other programs are running. Especially kazaa.. it eats up your system resources.

    I use bs player, and before I had my colour to highest setting when I put it down to 16, wow&#33; running like a 900mhz (thanks again mate) icons has degraded in quality but thats hardly something to cry over I tried it with a copy of the hulk it was all pixilated but I discovered it was a damage file of the hulk so I still have to test this, also whats your resolution?

    ive ran 700mb movies on my pc with everything thats not vital and it still stutters before I done this thing but I dont know if this has solved this or not since I dont have any 700mb files right now but on other things like the speed of programs are like 30% improved

    Have you also updated and run AD Aware and SpyBot?
    Lastly, did you do a line-by-line check of MSCONFIG&#39;s startup menu?
    And even running a Disk Cleanup can help -- c:&#092;windows&#092;temp often gets filled with 10+ MBs of junk files after just a month.
