New Premium Module: Tyrants of the Moonsea! Read More
I've been noticing longer and longer save times since running recent updates on Win 10. I'm running a 6GB Toshiba with a Intel Processor and have 5.88 GB available, so it's not like the computer is full. I've uninstalled many superfluous programs, but am an amateur so can't tell if the "windows stuff" running in the background (e.g., svchost.exe files, of which there are many) are interfering with this. It is increasingly annoying, and now the save times are up to a minute per try and load times between areas are also super long. Interestingly, it doesn't seem to affect the front-end load of the game itself, just during game play. I thought it might be corrupted, so I uninstalled and reinstalled both enhanced BG1/SOD and BG2 and deleted all former save files, including those in My Documents, but it still isn't helping much. I've also ensured Norton was completely uninstalled as I know that has posed issues with WinDefender. Any ideas on a simple (or even not so simple) fix?
