You're most certainly welcome!

Apparently there's a newer version just released since you first posted this now seen. The 3.0.4 version is now listed at Downloads - VirtualBox You see the prompting for this when the VBox is opened for the first time of the day or night when you start your system up.

This is a great little program, now I have even less reason to use IE, as I only ever used it because of the drag and drop Skydrive feature when using it.

This certainly bailed me out on the SUN Portable Virtual Box 7 install to vhd on the usb flash drive here. Files I wanted there as well as the 7 install on vhd by way of the MS Virtual PC RC now seen are easily transferred from the main dirve. Only the XP mode has direct access to anything other then the dvd drive used for installation or running a live cd of some type there.

After I followed:How to Upload to Windows SkyDrive from Windows 7 Desktop, my hotmail freezes, ie I can see that I have e-mail, but I cannot read it. I'm using Firefox 3.5.2.
There is no problem reading my e-mail on another computer.
Hoew can I unfreeze hotmail?
TIA gfheiche

I believe it's about the application itself, not the uploaded files.

The entire process works through IE 8 not other browsers since you going through Windows Live Hotmail. Plus if you have the Live messenger added on that will bind things up at first while that loads when first going to look at the mail or simply login there.

Even with the automatic logon and automatic sign in unchecked here I still have to wait a bit until the first item finishes loading with a red X when not signing into messenger itself. If you added that on that would be another reason for seeing it bind up a bit there.

It works great! The one thing to remember with this is trying it with any files that are too large to begin with. For small files like images or some custom wav files for assigning sounds to Windows functions the transfers are practically instantaneous!
