OK, I have been reading about some users changing this file to read only and also about a further tweak involving relocating it all together. I am on a 120gb harddrive with 8 gigs of system ram. I have already set the file to read only and it did seem to make things a little bit smoother. Mt question is, with my amount of ram, is the other tweak even needed? It seems kinda confusing and it mentioned something about putting it on another hard drive. I only have an external drive as a back up so I doubt that would be a suitable drive to use.
