I d/l that last week and it seemed to have helped both browsers' response time, thanks.

Only had a few extentions in Chrome and deleted them then restarted Chrome. It seemed to have helped and I didn't clear the cache but will do that if something like this arises again, thanks @lamb.

comment Mouse movement in KVM is much slower than VirtualBox, any work arounds?
I had the same problem on a touchpad while running Ubuntu VirtualBox with Win7 being the main OS on my laptop. Will let you know if I figure anything out when I use it next.

comment How vibration sensitive are hard disk drives?
Sounds like a good idea. I would use something like this: itapestore.com/velcrocoins-5815sets-black.aspx instead of the double sided tape.

You want to put the laptop drive in the desktop case?

Has it always done this, or is the a recent occurrence? Does it do the same thing in hibernate?

comment Frequency of running chkdsk for a Win7 machine
@sam I've only seen this chkdsk prompt today. The only other times I've seen it was on request and that was several months ago. I bypassed it but maybe i shouldn't have? I'm running windows7. I have held the power button in recently which may have been the cause of this prompt. And lastly, true why was it downvoted? I think my question seems legit.
