I would think you're right, but I'm not sure. It certainly shouldn't install
itself into the system folder at all, but on the desktop (that's where mine
went). Did you copy it from another computer, or DL it from the website?
Actually, it shouldn't matter. It should have ended up in a folder on the
desktop. If that's where it is, though, and it starts using sys memory when
it launches, it must be corrupted somehow.

Hmm...maybe that's a holdover from the original 1.0 version. Rev people?
