I posted this in another thread also. It appears that there is a problem
with RC2 regarding RAM. If you have less than 1GB it doesn't like it. They
say this will be fixed in the Final release. A gentleman on another site
1/ Ensure that you have the following registry value set to :
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\DWM\Composition set to 1 (32-bit DWORD)
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\DWM\CompositionPolicy set to 2 (32-bit DWORD)
2/ Restart DWM by opening a command prompt with administrative privileges :
- Type 'net stop uxsms'
- Then 'net start uxsms'
