I opened a .xsesssion-errors file which admittedly was 1.07Gb, only after a few days of use!!!, and whole system came to a crawl. Tried to copy some of the file so as to post it here but just total lock-up. Before lock-up I saw in Task Manager that CPUs were being used 100%, 4Gb of RAM @ 97% and 2Gb swap used. That is nearly 6Gb of memory space for a 1.07Gb file!!! As I cannot read the ,xsessions-errors file I deleted it but only have recovered 100Kb of disk spsace!!!???
