    I've so far:

    1. Run crapware remover to remove the.... crap.
    2. Installed Firefox 3 (with Touch and FingerFox)
    3. Turned off Areo
    4. Watched an episode of Simpsons

    How do I go about optimizing the computer now?

    My windows rating should be about a 4.0 right? I'm 0.4 points short. Something about Windows Areo, it's at 3.6. My graphics is also at a 3.8 for some reason.... what do I need to do to really get this baby going.

    Any drivers I should download asap?

    Thanks in advance guys!

    What version are you running & how much ram do you have installed?
    Try making sure all your drivers, particularly graphics are current.

    That is probably why. If I recall correctly.. only the people who got the 2.2 and above got 4.0's as their scores.

    I'm more inclined to think its the ram & not the processor.

    I have to agree with Drtigerlilly... I read somewhere that the users who had equally matched pairs of RAM were the ones who were getting a WEI score of 4.0.

    The GUI is generally faster, though if the graphics card is good it will not make much of a difference.

    The WEI just takes the lowest score though, having 4GB of ram gives you a RAM score of 5.9, having only a gigabyte less is doubtful to bring it down to less then 4.0
