Also this is a known issue with some laptops. Since I didn't find the make and model I can't offer if this applies.
As to the folder size we cover that in this forum's sticky notes.
Over the past few weeks my PC will white screen occasionally; it seems like it happens when I switch users.....then, of course, I have to reboot. It happened twice today so I decided it was time for the old system restore. But, my most recent point was as midnight tonight. (I just went to check it again and see that there are currently NO restore points....great).
Any suggestions on my next steps....maybe upgrade to win 7?
Also, my windows folder is 15GB, does that seem excessive?
Thx for any advice - Chris
