I did see one of those errors, I'm not sure where. My initial observations were very positive, but I need to give the machine some run time. Thanks.

Thanks. Finding out how to change Chrome (they don't make it easy) was one of my next stops, and Martin did a good job on it there.

I made the Chrome cache location switch via the direct Registry hack. I think it's working, but it seems chrome doesn't use much cache?

IAC, things seem to be working smoothly. Most of the time this machine is running quite nicely, which is a minor miracle.

I spoke to Andrew over at SoftPerfect, and he said it is possible a large installer would choke on such little %TEMP%. If so, the thing to do would be to switch TEMP to the hard drive temporarily.

A better solution, short of replacing the hard drive, would be to up the RAM to 2GB and increase the RAM disk %TEMP% space. I don't plan on going that route though.

Thanks and BW.
