I thought the profiles are calculated on the fly. If they are not, then that explains everything. I understand that it will make the gantry fly of the table if someone would enter 1000% ;).
Also the use of different feed speeds for approach and things alike makes it even worse. The approach speeds are low already and setting things to 50% is making that a crawl and hot running tools. If the 50% rule should be used, then there would have to be several F1, F2,F3 etc.... which then would need weighted factors. of course that would now make a complete mess out of the problem lol.

I have moved the computer to the rear of the machine and have a usb cable only a foot long between the computer and SS and I am still losing comm with SS every 5 minutes or so  . I just cant think of any other variables to try

I dont know if this helps but when i reboot the computer I have to unplug and replug the USB going to SS before mach will communicate with it.

Try going into device manager and see if you can rollback the driver for the SS.

Did you use the same download of Mach, SS Drivers and SS Plugin on them, might be one or all of these are corrupt, try downloading each again.

downloaded everything fresh and attempting to instal. Now I get a message when I plug the SS in that says unrecognized USB device . Uninstal driver and run new hardware wizard to re-instal driver and I get a message stating there is no better driver than the one already installed.

Try using FTClean to wipe out all traces of the drivers then reinstal.

Sounds like your USB Hubs are screwed in windows, try deleting them in device manager then restarting and letting windows reinstall the drivers.

Just another thought, make sure you have the jumper for power set the right way on the SS, may be you are trying to power from USB but its set for external or vice versa.
