At first glance it is seems you never installed LM by yourself and never know who is user. User is YOU! newbie serena is user his of own computer and his own OS. Account under wh...

Best application? Update manager :mrgreen: Try to install few kernels one by one in sequence. Very few things can make CPU more hot than this.
