After discovering I had a UNVALID version of XP Pro (unable to get service packs), and being frowned upon by the powers that be...
Aquired a VALID version of XP Pro (EXPENSIVE) and downloaded SP2..
I also installed PC-Cillin 2006, which comes with a firewall of it's own..should I run the XP firewall, or PC-Cillin's?
Also, now that I have SP2, I have "Windows Security Alerts" icon in my system tray, which constantly tells me my auto update is off...annoying..can I get rid of that?
Still working on the CPU and RAM issue (pentium II @ 360 / 256 RAM)...I know, like running a VW at the Indy track...but system has actually seemed to speed up since new XP / SP2 install.
