@ichun: I'm successfully running Office 2007 Pro with no problems. I intend to install Office 2010 Beta using the standard installation process. I think the virtualization software built into the 'Click to Run' software is causing the problem. It would be interesting to find out if anyone else using products based the former 'Softricity' platform experience similar problems.
@ambizytl: I know I shouldn't need to use the optimizer. Now that I've removed the virtualized Office 2010 product, I plan to monitor performance (without using the optimizer). If performance doesn't degrade, I don't plan on using the optimizer again. I will update this forum with my thoughts...
I have the same issue as the original poster, and i can't get the SSD Optimizer to work. When i click the "run" button the whole bar turns red and the status changes to "failed" and Recommended Action changes to "Intel SSD Optimizer error".
I've disabled defrag, turned on ACHI, i have no virtual drives, no encrypted areas, the firmware is 02HA and i've tried with both version 1.2 and 1.3 of the SSD Toolbox.
And i can run the diagnostic scans in the toolbox without any errors.
Any more tips and tricks for that issue except the ones that have been discussed so far?
