When starting up my emulator at home, the emulator takes forever to start. Sometimes it does not start. If the emulator starts, it is hit or miss if I get a network connection. When it does finally start, and I do get a network connection, it is incredibly slow.
I have the same set up at work, and the emulator flies. It is a joy to work on it, while at home it is a borderline nightmare.
My work computer and my home computer are both Windows XP. My home computer has 8 gigs of ram, while my work computer has MUCH less. My home computer has plenty of more processor.
What should I look for in comparison or analysis in getting the emulator at home working better?
