  2. Running OK here, after a couple of reboots. I did have a couple of freezes
    when I opened Windows Mail, but those seem to have disappeared also.

  6. I ended up rolling back my system to get rid of it (antivirus). My system
    became very unstable after about 24 hours - to the point of being unusable.

  7. I am wondering whether this is a x86 vs x64 thing accounting
    for the differences in reported experience.

    I've installed it on beta 2 x64 and intially it worked fine, but after a
    couple of reboots the real time protect mode stopped working.

    Not seeing any stability issues though.

    *Zero* problems here since last Thursday; I'm using it as my day-to-day
    system.

    Am on Beta2 x86 is gobs of RAM and HDD space; the only tweaks were:
    -- Paging (removed the automatic config; manually set to the recommended
    level)
    -- eTrust ezAntiVirus (disabled the Email scanning non-sense)

    I advise others do similar (stabilize system paging) as that usually causes
    additional CPU clock cycles and added HDD activity for zero performance
    benefit.

  11. Maybe you've just got a crap computer or a bad installation?
