Default Survey - When did you last reinstalled Windows XP and Why

In my case, I bought this PC in February 2003. The following June, I killed the Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS) which is a process in the Windows OS that verifies my logging on to the computer. I did not know what I was doing while tweaking with the boot screen. Since then this PC is performing as optimistic as it should.

Yours?

I was hacked, smacked, jacked or what ever you wanna call it. The os was compromised and had to be reinstalled.

My last reinstall was about 2-3 years ago. Actually it was the first install on a new computer. What's that thing about Windows being so unstable?

Windows XP by itself is a very stable product. As long as you don't tweak with the operating system, you will be fine.
