Default About my Asus 1201N

Hi guys,

In Task Manager, we'll need to be able to see Processes From All Users, and to see all the processes, in order to help you
But... the thing is an Atom CPU, running Windows 7. This sort of thing is going to happen It happens on my netbook, admittedly to a lesser degree (but I run a very tight ship on my install).

Yes, the atom is slowing you down. Don't expect much out of it. Try to strip processes but the ones you need. Run > msconfig
