I know this has nothing to do with anything, but yesterday I had to redo my whole hard drive on my PC (though I was already comtemplating this, considering the program slow downs). Well, I deleted a few services out of my registery (and forgot to back it up and had turned off system restore for months now) and those were dependant on me getting access to the internet, more or less to my Ethernet cards - IPNat and IPSec. I tried everything to get it in working condition, but found I had to reinstall the OS. Well, I reinstalled it, Did all the updates except for SP2. Installed Avast! Anti-virus, MSN Messenger, AIM (which I call iChat even for pc), ZoneAlarm, Spybot Search & Destroy, Ad-aware SE Personal, ATI Graphics Drivers, and a few side programs. That was my trip and all this time I'm thinking - if I would have had my mac (see siggy, It'll be here wed.), none of this would have ever happened. I've never had to redo a mac (even my PB I never did), while this is my 12th time in 2 years for this pc. - Like 70th time total for all PC's I have had.
