SW ’10 CPU usage on Boot Camp


New member
I just upgraded from SW 2008 SE to 2010 SE and have witnessed a HUGE performance slow down (even with smaller files.) In Task Manager, my CPU usage for SW hovers around 50% and makes modeling very painful.

Here's my info:

Windows XP (with service pack 3)
Running through Boot Camp on a 2007 iMac
4GB of RAM
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600 XT graphics card with updated driver

If any body has any ideas, I'd love the help.
