ok, here's an update: uninstalled McAfee and it really didn't did NOT speed things up at all. Then I uninstalled Windows Live and THAT WAS IT! Now this Mini is no longer a chore to use.

One other issue though: My hard drive is contantly on, the hard drive sound you get when you first start up your laptop. Does this happen to you all?

hard disk whirling noise is now solved. I did a Dell Image Restore and now this Mini is working faster than ever.

McAfee p.s.: My Mini is pretty swift right now even with McAfee activated and running. Contrary to apparent Internet wisdom, McAfee has not noticeably affected system performance.

this is my first post here. i too just purchased a mini 10. at first, it was pretty slow. i restarted, and it froze on the "shutting down" screen. It seems however since i did a Windows Update, it sped things up, and everything is opening, and running quite smoothly.

Love the mini 10 so far.
