    If it is mentioning ActiveX, then you have the version for IE. Download the version for "other browsers", here if you want. FF does not use ActiveX.

    Yes - just to see how low spec things can run on.

    I was surprised that it didn't like the processor either, though.

    Win 8 CP had no problems - it wasn't fast, but I did not expect it to be. Windows 7, XP, Ubuntu, LinuxMint all run fine too. I'll set up a windows to go installation tomorrow, to run on a 2GB system.

    Did you use this tool? It's meant for 7 but it also works on 8.

    P.S.: it will format your pendrive.
