I recently suffered a complete system failure and had to reformat my computer. :mad: Before I had a chance to update windows through microsoft.com someone got onto my system and blocked my updates. IE seems to have a backdoor that's very easy to expoit. :Eyecrazy: :eek: :Eyecrazy: Took another reformat and instalation with my firewall on, took a little while approving everytime they needed access to my computer.

If you havn't downloaded Service Pack II for your system I'd recomend doing it soon.

Had a little blue screen problem a few weeks ago. $120.- and a recovery/#2 download did the trick, but I lost 70+ photos in the processes :(

P.S. Those of us w/ digital camera equip. need to format after dowloading our pics to avoid corupt files :Eyecrazy: :confused: :whoa: :eek:
It's not enough to just "delete" the photos!
