Shouldn't be a problem. Just make sure you have UAC off and installed eveything as an Admin. (right click/run as admin) Runs sweet as a nut on my old rig with Win 7.Maybe a bit more info on when the freezes and lockups occur might help people diagnose the problem.

Whenever you get a lockup or the system freezes, you need to look into the Event Viewer and see if there is any information regarding the event. If you're not familiar with the Event Viewer, simply click on the Start button, Type ev in the search box and look immediately up at the top for search results which should list the Event Viewer. When it opens, look at Custom Views/Administrative Events. It may indicate a .dll or module which caused the crash and that should provide a clue as to what is causing the crash(es). Best regards,Jim
