Finally updated to 8.1.

Any way to make it quicker? Running it on a Netbook with no touch screen.

Thanks

Tbh I used to have a netbook running Windows 7 and in the end I got rid of it. Personally I thought it was underpowered to run it.

Everything bottlenecks the CPU.

I upgraded it to 4GB from 2GB which makes a difference, but could still be quicker.
