    What are you doing when it lags? A large brush? Large file?

    Vista 32 or 64 bit?

    Either way you need more ram-as much as you can. At least 4 GB for Vista 32 bit, and at least 8 GB for Vista 64 bit.

    make sure you have sp1 installed for painter 11, it was solving quite a few cpu issues with that release
    but overall, painter X and 11 have never been really super-fast for me.

    on the fourth day of glitchmas my painter™ gave to me
    four random crashes, three broken brushes, two system hangups & one corrupted workspace

    it starts to lag if i go too big with the brush or go too big with the file, but it can be limiting at times. i have a 32 bit and am pretty sure my ram is maxed out at 2gb, i read somewhere you cant have more than a certain amount for certain pc's?
