    Solidworks Running Seriously Slow

    Laurence Mottishaw

      Hello,

       

      I wonder if anyone can help;

       

      I have recently installed solidworks 2011 on a brand new laptop.

       

      Everytime the user runs solidworks, it is extremely slow, it freezes up and the user cant run anything else.

       

      I have attached a screen shot of the processes within the task manager and solidworks is doing a good job sucking the life out of the laptop. (this was constantly growing as well)

       

      The laptop is brand new and the specs are more than capable to run solidworks;

       

      Intel core i5

      8GB RAM

      500GB HD

       

       

      Help would be much appreciated!
