No problems with XP - I use version 2. It certainly frees resources when using FS with complex panel/scenery combinations and makes for a better frame rate.Toni.

Sow me proof of better fps.....Win9x code yes....But WinNT/2K/XP has memory resorces that cant compare...the old Win98 tools and so called tweaks are wasted and often problemental to XP. In XP only those processes that are culling for CPU cycles actually cost you anything. Open up your task manager and look at how many are loaded..yet what ones are actually in use. I generally have 32 or so processes loaded....also have 2 firewalls and Norton Protect always on. Yet I've yet to have a problem from them. I play hours online and off in WWIIOL, F1-2002, CFS3, FS2002 and more games. I've been running XP Pro since 10/91...on a overclocked XP1700/GF2-Ti/768Mb DDR homebuilt PC. I play with all settings maxed or near to it. (CFS3)A fantastic resource on running games on NT/2K/XP is http://falcon.unroutable.net/ It's focused on Falcon 4.0, but is applicable to any game.Cheers!

Howard,EndItAll and EndItAll 2 were created by a Neil Rubenking, a writer for PC Magazine, so you can find it at the magazine's download site at http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,4149,1935,00.aspI haven't checked but I seemed to recall that you now have to register with the PC Magazine website before downloading but you can check for yourself.Although EndItAll works very well my application of choice is Memory Boost Pro. In addition to being an exceptional memory manager even with Windows XP, it includes a module that shuts down all "non-essential" processes and programs running in the background. EndItAll requires a fair amount of tweaking to get it to work correctly. On the other hand, you simply install Memory Boost Pro and forget it. It shuts down all programs (in my experience) without any additional tweaking.You can find Memory Boost Pro at http://www.tenebril.com/products/memboost/index.htmlYou should also look into shutting down any default Windows XP processes that you don't use. By default, Windows installs many processes that aren't needed and closing them will go a long way to freeing up resources for use by your processor. See either http://members.internettrash.com/megapolon/winxptweak.html or http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm for much more information. I prefer the first site since its easier to read.I use a AMD 1.2 gHz processor and I dare say I get much better performance that many high end systems.
