    ****Edit: I suspect this most recent Windows boo-boo is the result of my Logitech G5 mouse. I installed the most recent drivers this morning which I'm sure is at the root of my problem. Back in the XP days I bought a Logitech mouse and it destroyed my XP box when installed the OEM driver package. I didn't do a back-up prior to doing the driver install... I thought "what could go wrong with a mouse?". I spent the next day rebuilding my system as it simply wouldn't come back from the dead after the failed install.
    I have never had the problems that you are experiencing. I get an occassional lockup because of some bad code I've written but I do a lot of development of database application and web apps. The file server in my living room runs Sever 2008 and on it I have SQL Server 2008, My SQL, Apache, Php and SharePoint. I spend a lot of time pushing my 7 workstation which contains my development environment to the limit. On it I have Visual Studio 2008 database addition Adobe Creative Studio 4, Silverlight and Expression Studio. Honestly I have never had the difficulties that your are having.

    I know you guys look at me like a hick that drives a tractor. I have built more computers than i can count and did it for several years. I built all the computers and maintained and networked them for a chain of optical stores in Tulsa. In the early eighties I had the first apple computer made and learned how to program in apple basic long before anyone had any interest in computers. I had a part time computer and photography business for several years while I worked in machine shops as a tool maker. I pretty much quite at the end of 2003 and bought my equipment and went into tractor work. I got tired of the tech calls in the evening when people would do stupid shit.

Sometimes I will leave my main computer booted for a month at a time without shutting it down without a problem. one other thing, keep background programs in the tray to a minimum. I have had problems in the past with certain memory configurations. When i upgrade memory on a machine that I am unfamiliar with I do a Google search of the forums and look for problems before I buy a specific module. Any more I deal with laptops more than towers. Laptop components seem to be of better quality and are better matched then in desktop computers. Since the dual cores came out the speed is great.
    It's nothing unique to me. Lots of people have little issues with Windows. Google bares this simple fact out. It's usually nothing major, but it is tiresome constantly debugging various applications and drivers.

    My G5 mouse issue isn't surprising. The drivers are first generation 64bit drivers. I'm sure there will be several releases before Logitech gets the bugs worked out. Meanwhile, my Mighty Mouse has no such issues. :)

    As for the 4GB error and the ISO image, do you have any idea how to work around this annoying issue?



    ***Despite what the error says, there is over 500GB available on the disk where the decompression is taking place.

    Are you using NTFS and what is the size of the biggest file in the archive if you are extracting or what is the size of the archive if you are compressing?

    I sympathize. My Federal government career was IBM mainframe and operating systems installation and maintenance for the Federal Reserve, USDA, Interior and DoD. I still cringe when I recall those 3am calls.

    The lesson is to ALWAYS avoid the rusting edge and NEVER venture to the bleeding edge. When your apps stop running, upgrade to a release that other users have already debugged.

    P.S., I also build my own PCs. With off the shelf stuff, it's easier to upgrade the hardware.

    I'll bet you are using FAT32. If you are then go to the 2 links below. NTFS max file file size is about 16TB. Max file size for FAT32 is 4GB.

    At first it's great for the ego, everybody happy because you are solving their problems but after awhile it becomes several hours a week and cuts into your free time. I don't tell most people now that i know anything about computers. people will come over to visit and I have computers everywhere I use two at my desk one in my bathroom, one in the powder keg where I reload. one in the truck. I like to buy parts laptops on ebay and fix them, but don't tell anybody!

    You know what, you're right. The external drive I'm using is FAT32. Thanks!

    That was what I was trying to get at in my last post. I've ran in to this problem before.
