PTC webcast killed my PC..

That crap is messed up like ptc maintenence. It loads, gives you some phone numbers and dies. When you try to exit windows wants to send the error back to windows. Very strange.

did you take a look at your RAM usage using task manager? once it finishes buffering it just goes mad!

cheers for trying!

The video spools right up and my task manager never goes over 400mb with Pro/E running.

We have the crappiest internet connection to, it goes from the U.S to China and back ... it instantly turns a T1 line into a 56.6
