Aha, thanks Dave!! I guess its worth a try. Didnt work (a delete and re-install) with Bodog, but maybe you can help me here. I use Avira free anti-virus, and cant find a firewall configuration in it. I thought that was because you DONT get a firewall with the free version. Do you know if this is true?
And my PC has been acting slow and sluggish for a couple of months now. It is a year old, and I dont want to do a complete re-install, but think I may have registry problems or something, since it is so sluggish, I may be infected somehow. My Avira has found and eliminated a few nasty things, maybe they were able to do some damage before discovery???
I dont have time to do a re vamp of the whole machine, but will have time middle of August, so if I cant come up with a better idea by then, I will try that.
I use XP professional, SP2 I bought the XP on ebay and after my first installation got a message that it is an already installed OS, called the guy, he gave me a key that worked, but when I (later) try to update to SP3 I get a message again that my XP is not a valid key, and the ebay guy is gone...lol. I guess I am using a non valid OS, and I paid for it, so that suks. I dont want to go to Windows 7 since I have a few things I cant run on 7, and I like XP anyway. Vista suks so bad so even tho I have it I erased it fast, and wont go back there. HEM suggested I update to SP3, but I cant (yet, a friend says there is a way around, but he aint got time to help me). But everything worked fine for almost a year with this system as it is, so I guess I need to do a day and re format my HD and re install the works... I hate it but I am sure that will work, but as you know, it is a REAL PAIN, so if you have any suggestions, I am all ears. (Literally, I must post a pic someday...lol)
And gratz, BTW Dave!!!! I read the thread!
