Okay, I tried deleting the Dreamweaver cache file before replying. It seems to solve the crash issue where Dreamweaver was closing. It does take a while for pages to load once I double click them in Dreamweaver (4-5 seconds). However, I'm assuming that will only be the case the initial time I open a page - because of the cache being deleted. I will work with this fix for a few days and see if any problems resurface.
Thank you! This at least gets me back up and running. Also, far better than the 30 seconds lost per saved edit on the page. Great to know I can get competent and speedy help!
