like i said many times before, wait a little bit before trying anything. wait for millions to try it before you.

rats are make it tru many things for a reason, they never gouge themselves on some new food source they just found,
instead they take a small bite, chances are more rats have tried it before so if they see dead bodies,
they wont eat...are rats smarter than ppl? hmmmmmmmmmmm

I had SP1 installed and it caused a lot of hanging and made anything involving file transfers painfully long. Uninstalling it seems to have fixed the problem.

Running just fine here on 7 very different rigs. No out of this world ram usage too... 1 to 12gb worth installed per computer.

C2D, Centrino and 720QM lappies.
P45 (2), AM2+ and X58 rigs.

Seems like the problem is pretty minor and just related to a small number of set-ups. Sadly, since windows allows all types of hardware (unlike apple) compatability is not always guaranteed.

I had memory issues.

And at work we had a few broken Window installs due to the Service Pack screwing up something which was incompatible on the system.
