    Hey MR peeps, seems that my computer is running into some problems, well one problem I guess!

    All of a sudden my machine has gotten a lot slower - today I have been doing some video work on Final Cut Pro and the render times have slowed down to a crawl - right now I'm exporting a 2.5 minute video to quicktime - 3 hours! All the rendering has been super slow too.

    I haven't used my computer since Friday (today is Sunday) - I was running FCP then, and before I shutdown I downloaded bootcamp 1.2 and installed it. THe machine was running fine. Now it's like a dog!

    I'm more than sure it's not related, it just can't be! I haven't installed the 1.2 drivers on my other partition yet so no complaints there.

    Any ideas on what diagnositics to run, or how to speed this bad boy up!
