    Before I get my iBook I'll do complete system maintenance on this machine, so I won't get fragmented of infected files on iBook after transferring.
    This far has happened:
    - drive D: has corrupted sectors. Defragging doesn't help
    - AVG Anti-Vir and got 27 viruses. XP has automatic updates turned on.
    - Ad-Aware catched 18 dataminers despite the fact I never use Internet Exploder
    - EasyClean removed 39 damaged or obsolete sys.reg files

    As a sidenote, I do this every goddamn month! I'm more than interested to try living with virus/spyware free system. Does Apples filesystem require somekind of defrag, btw?

    That's horrible. My PC isn't that bad...


    ...yet. :eek:

    By the way, OSX automatically defrags on the fly. :)

    Use Scandisk (or whatever it's called now). Defrag can't fix (or even find) errors with the drive.

    in order to defrag, one has to scandisc anyway.

    Okay, now it seems like my drive D is slowly corrupting. I've already lost quite some videos I:
    - Jaana Pelkonen strippaus teininä
    - Michael Jackson - Black or White (full version)
    - Doomilaakson tarinoita osa9 kusikilpailu
    - ALL of my Rammstein music videos!!!
    - Schnappi das kleine Krokodil video
    - Jenna Jameson latex nurses 2

    :(
