[squeak-dev] Poor Squeak performance on Vista

One of our students is having trouble with very poor Squeak
performance on Vista. I was hoping that someone with Windows
experience could help diagnose his problem.
"Is anyone else having problems with Squeak being incredibly slow to
respond? It was fine the past couple of days, but it just started
happening to me tonight. I have reset Squeak, and my system. I have
also downloaded new images. Nothing seems to help. Also, my HD light
isn't on, nor is my comp processor utilization being eaten up. Any
"I have closed most of the [Squeak] windows and that doesn't help."
"I tried the roundedWindowCorners preference and the
higherPerformance preference, and I changed the VM system
configuration to disable "Reduce CPU usage". None of this helps.
I am not doing any memory or internet intensive things. There is
sometimes up to a 10 second delay between me clicking, and the World
menu showing up.
I am using VM Version 3.10.6 and Squeak system version 3.9.1. I have
Windows Vista (unfortunately).
I checked the Process Browser and idle process definitely is the max
value averaging around 90% and the rest of the percentage going to
the GUI and the auto-update.
Any other thoughts?
