Microsoft has encountered a critical system error and must now shut down. Better get Bill Gate$ on the phone for this one.......

 

Another good resource is an online virus scanner.
I occasionally use Trend Micro's free online scanner called HouseCall.
It can remove any threats that my anti vrius scanner doesn't detect...and has helped me out of many a jam.

Seriously, I understand the blah blah blah, but if your a computer geek, and you run so high and tight that your underwear can't bee seen and your virus scanner spends most of it's time in HI on vacation, then skip that one article.

While I love MPC, and would kill to have more pages dedicated to "hard core" content, the simple fact is that the majority of "common folk" couldn't get their general computing liscense if we had one.

I've allready proposed to legislature that this should be done. Cars can be lethal. So can computers. I have seen WARGAMES, The MATRIX, Die hardon, and several other movies where computers could cause harm. Lets not even get into carpal tunnel, or the dreaded MAC use...

Seriously though, every now and then, someone buys MPC off the shelf. You have to cater to those readers to get new subscribers. If MPC gets enough new subscribers, maybe they won't have 10 page 1&1 adds anymore! (not likely) Better yet, maybe they will have more articles for you and me!

Blah Blah Blah. Tell us something we dont know. I am tired of your How to heal this and that. Come up with something diffrent. It seems like every other issues discusses the same topic.

This is a very good article that really puts the pieces together for Windows XP users.

It's amazing how illogical a business built on binary logic can be.

I personally like to use nLite to build my bootable XP CDs with SP2 and all of the MS Updates slipstreamed in. You can find nLite here: http://tinyurl.com/dxlrw. And you can grab a nice little package with a lot of the post-SP2 updates from this site: http://tinyurl.com/yqpepd. While the updates haven't been maintained recently, they do give you a huge leg up when you need to wipe your system clean and start all over again. You can also download all of the post-SP2 updates from Microsoft individually and slipstream them using nLite if you really want to make sure you have all of the latest patches.
