Default Running paraview parallel on windows 7

Naruto is on a distinguished road
Dear users,
Hello everyone. Currently I am handling a lot of data in VTK format with paraview in windows 7. To be specific the number of cells is around 1.5 millions. Although I have a very powerful graphics card, my paraview is operating very slow. I guess the problem is arising due to the usage of the processor. Is anything like mpirun available on windows 7? If so then I think I could possibly use it and make paraview faster. Could anyone shade some lights on this matter? I would appreciate your help.
Thank you.

Greetings Naruto,

ParaView provides a neat feature to activate (by default) the usage of multiple cores on a single machine.
It's accessible through the menu "Edit -> Settings", then in the "General" item on the tree on the left and then it's the option "Use Multi-Core". To its right you can choose the number of cores.

Keep in mind that "the more, the merrier; but too many makes a mess"

Best regards,
