Any help or suggestion?

We aren't likely to be able to help without a lot more information, such as what kind of footage you're working with, what kinds of compositions, and so on.

Are you saying that it takes a long time to render frames when you drag the current-time indicator to a new frame?

Overall they are running slow in terms of performance.
Its all happen when I realized there is something wrong with the playhead/time slider becoming jumpy instead of moving smoothly along the any given frames in the timeline panel. And no problem with the visual in the composition viewer panel.

Even more slower when it gets another big project file to open

For example:
a new PAL WIDESCREEN SQUARE PIXEL composition with 150 frames of duration, just blanky/empty composition and when I hit RAM preview button the playhead/time slider not sliding smoothly along the timeline, but its jumped every each 5-6 frame till the end of timeline.

I've tried to enable/disable OpenGL in the Preferences, drag out the OpenGL.aex from its default folder, reinstalling the program, resetting the preferences with pressing Ctrl+Shift+Alt, reinstalling OS but it seems doens't make any changes.

Thanx for the respons
Sorry bad english
