Why are you hanging on to an old OS? :P

Things with those older Operating Systems can be tricky. I'm not sure there is an answer to your problem other then find $2000.00 on the street and buy me, er I mean you, a new PC. :)

well,because the more i mess with this piece of crap,the more i can learn how to fix my new drive!....i cleaned this one up....it was running only33 to 44%ram performance when i got it and now i got it up to 72% of 280ram with my programs and rfirewall running..couldn't do that before,so i have a new drive 10gigw/pro2000 and this is my 'backup' drive,so i thought why not try some of the thingsi learned here! i found in the forums that norten systemworks are huge resourse gobblers and i counld't use my nzvoice and surf without 'system resources very low' and i need to be available for my motel while online....the choice was wipe this drive and use it as a slave, or see what i can learn from it! :( ...gee,PC,i thought i dun good! :lol:
