    Ok, I have my MP 8 cores 10GB ram.

    I open After Effects, Cinema 4D and when I open Illsutrator the computer gets really slow. I mean, I have itunes and photoshop open and it take like 5 seconds or more to open Safari. The dock does not open, is like if I was using all teh computer resouces but I can not really isolate where. I believe is Illustrator but I mean... I have 10GB of ram!!! and I am not using anything heavy in Illsutrator, probably 3MB at the most files.

    Any idea how to check?

    I am using CS3, I do not know if is 32bit because it feels like.

    No Creative Suite is 64-bit. Your 10GB of RAM is meaningless because the app can only address 3.3GB.

    Download either YASU or Onyx and running all the cleaning routines. Let the program reboot your Mac then immediately manually reboot to completely rebuild your startup/shutdown cache. This should speed up your Mac and doing this kind of maintenance every 3 months should keep your Mac running almost like new (barring any hardware problems).
