That's a really boring website, Prox. I'm glad you're so happy with angelfire, though.

Argh - I didn't get to complete the link b/c my computer restarted.
Because, y'know...that damn worm hit it.
Again.
Because I can't download the patch...b/c my computer keeps crashing...before it can do so...
Check again.

(That's the site that angelfire puts up as a default...I just use it for file storage.)

I didn't get it, my job (and the rest of the campus) got it.
The problem is that the comps kept restarting b/f we could download the cleaner and patch...
One of our comps's still running on 98, though, so we downloaded them onto that and then distributed them.

i looked into it but apparently im not at risk, being that i use win me. yes, gasp and point and laugh at me, i have been too lazy to change it. i have xp pro but i dont want to put it on just yet. the win me came with this pc and it happens to have all the drivers etc, and if i do a clean install, which i will do when switching to xp, i want it to be running smoothly. i hate nothing worse than running at anything other than my 1268 by 720 res. i was playing a lot of pc games too, and when i had xp on here before, i had CRAP framerate, and that just wont do when you play fps. yes, i have an agressive side.

but yea, im gonna get my software engineer friend to do it for me, as he wont get so frustrated. i will. i always do, when its my own pc im working on.

does anyone know anything about whether i have to worry, with win me? i went all over links and ms' website, and they never mentioned win me being at risk at all. i hope they are right.
