Whoa, I almost drowned from the wave of questions..LOL . RoadRunner runs slow for me too and i have a p4 2.5 ghtz so I switched to Frodo which is lightning fast for me. RR is written in a different code than Fodo which is why Frodo is Faster. As for your other questions, I would search the appropriate forums for your answers because they've all been asked. All is Possible. Also a Welcome from a fellow Newb!
