Maybe this is common knowledge, but I learned this recently and it has really helped. When I used to run an SEO tool like SB, AMR, and various others that I use they tended to grind on the PC resources and can really lag? but you can prioritize system resources to a tool that you are using and it greatly reduces the lag. What you do is use the Windows Task Manager and assign a priority to it. Here is how you do it in Windoze:  hit the <Ctrl><Alt><Del> keys to activate the Windows Task Manager  select the ?Processes? tab at the top  scroll down and highlight the app your are using (the words will be highlighted in blue when it is selected)  right click on your selected app, then slide down the cursor to ?Set Priority?  then select ?Realtime?, you will then get a warning message but just click on ?Yes? and it will be OK Now you are in business and your app should run much faster? give it a try and see if it makes a difference for you? hope that helps someone.
