    Hi there!

    I just installed Windows 7 Professional 64 bits using Boot Camp. But when I tried to use Snow Leopard again, it runs slow. By slow I mean that, for instance, Spotlight takes a long time to do the searching and before installing Windows it was almost instantly.

    This is the data I get from iStat nano (I don't understand it completely but I think RAM is OK, the inactive field is the one why I have this doubt):

    RAM

    Wired: 1.30 gb Used: 3.90 gb
    Active: 2.60 gb Free: 95 mb
    Inactive: 3.99 gb Swap: 256 mb

    Do you need to add the Bootcamp partition to the Privacy panel for Spotlight so that it doesn't try to index it?

    Thanks, I just did that :)

    But it's not only Spotlight. I open Finder and it takes a couple of seconds to do it. Same thing with other applications...
