Exclamation Just a heads up...

I recently suffered a complete system failure and had to reformat my computer. 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. 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.

We who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who could not hear the music.

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
It's not enough to just "delete" the photos!
