Default Re: spyware or what?

I mean if you don't buy windows these days then no more updates, no more SP2 for you and no more anything, everything microsoft requires a valadation these days it's the worst, do yourself a favor and just pick up a new copy with sp2 on it and your fine. Or just go to start and click run, type in services.msc a new window will pop up, search for what is called messenger. If you are getting the popup that means the service will say it is started, all you have to do is right click the messenger program and press stop. You are good to go, this isn't a virus, this isn't spyware, this doesen't need any hardcore scanners or software.

Actually, there are ways to get SP2 and get updates, but you didn't hear that from me.

I'm perfectly fine paying for windows XP I got the OEM version of Home with SP2 for only like 89 bucks from newegg which isn't too bad. Media Center was 20 bucks more but I hate that one, it's really unstable in my experience.

People like you annoy me!
