Rather don't use the index tuning wizard. It's prone to giving rather sub-optimal suggestions. Learning to tune indexes yourself will get you much better results most of the time.

If you're not sure where to start, post the schema or one or two of your tables here, along with the more common queries and someone wll likly help you.

If you can, I would suggest getting a consultant in for a couple of days. Someone who specialises in performance tuning. They could then sho you how to go about things.

To use the Index Tuning Wizard you can capture a workload via Profiler or use one from the Query Analyzer Query window. You specify the database, level of analysis to be done, whether you want to keep all indexes and if you want to use indexed views. Next you specify where to find the query to be analyzed (profiler trace, workload file or QA Query window). Tell it what tables to use and then let it run.

It will provide recommendations on what index to add (or remove) and can generate the code to do so. You can either run the code right away or save it to run later.
