I like what this looks like and the little add ons but my laptop has slowed down to a very tired snail pace.Is there a solution or is this the price you have to pay?

results in an increased processor overhead. Ask yourself if the pain is worth the gain.

no it's not worth it.I've shut it down and things went pretty much back to normal.
However, I've got process explorer running and it's showing excessive cpu usage- 95% of which 84% is firefox although firefox doesn't seem to actually be doing anything.
Also is google desktop intended for dual core machines?
