No My Computer icon--can't do XP tweaks

I'm trying to follow the XP tweaks for NLEs and I can't figure out how to get to Virtual Memory, etc. How do get there without a My Computer icon to click on?

Open your Control Panel and select System".

Thanks. I started making the suggested changes and then got scared of doing some. Has anybody had trouble with any of the suggestions?

One thing I did halfway was changing the paging file size. I set the minimum at 1024, following Dave Laborde's rule of twice the memory, but I left the maximum at 1536, with all of it on the C drive. Might more than 1024 be needed? Is having all of it on the system drive (which currently has a single partition) OK?

The reason I'm interested in making changes is that Premiere 6 crashes my hour and a half project every few minutes (occasionally, every few hours).

Well, Premiere crashed at least as often with the tweaks, so I untweaked my system. Premiere still crashes every few minutes, but XP looks pretty again.

What version of Premiere are you running and are you running a PCI hardware accelrator with it?
