    how much ram and processor speed are u using to operate the trader workstation glitch free. ?

    the last 2 versions of the trader workstation r big memory and cpu hogs on my vista and having a lot of lock ups from the cpu being pegged at 100%.

    i used to have 10 open charts and now 3 is about the max, along with very slow loading when changing time frames and indicators.

    any suggestions
  2. You mean besides the obvious... "upgrade to XP"?

    mine has been running rock solid for 6 months.
    Both mem and cpu usage are minimal.

    V home prem 64
    q66, 4gb

    How much memory do you have and what is your processor speed?

    I've been running TWS on 3 different Vista systems for over a year now, 2 systems with 2 Gigs of RAM and 1 with 3 Gigs of RAM. All of them have run flawlessly with different versions of TWS and with multiple programs running.

    My thinkpad T60 that I'm using right now is running TWS, Streetsmart Pro, 3 browser windows open, and about 21 charts and I'm using a little more than half my RAM and only about 15% of my processing power using a Core 2 Duo at 2GHz.
