windows ME questions, questions, questions.......
my next PC will be running Windows ME. The PC will be supplied via my work,
so there's no choice here for me (ME?) (I think I would have preferred 98
SE). The harddisk (40GB matrox) will have ME installed, and both the Windows
ME set-up files and an image of the initial Harddisk 'on a hidden
partition'. Word has it that this partition is not seen by Format nor FDisk.
Is this really possible?
No Windows CD will be supplied. Seems a new way of MS to encourage working
with licensed software only.
Anyone familiar with this way of distributing an OS?

Anyone know of a utility that will record what files / folders / registry
keys an application accesses when it is starting? Do you also know if it is
possible to list what permissions it needs to access the files e.g.
administrator permissions or user permissions? Thanks.

All replied with different answers.
The software co. that found it said to upgrade and I did.

They all where in software programs I bought $$$
and downloaded from the net.
thanks in advance

XP machine has gone "berserk" downloading
and installing SP's / updates etc. Has gotten itself
to the point where it's almost useless.
Any process takes "forever"
Thinking of uninstalling all SP's etc and starting over.
Any tips, advice etc.
A clean "reinstall" is not really an option at this time.
Or, should I just uninstall Norton System "Slow works"
and go with AVG??

I want to install spyware on my system that is running under XP Home. I have
downloaded Spybot S&D and Spyhunter. I have been doing some research and the
more I read the more confused I become. I think I definitely need protection
and probably will not find the perfect solution but, my main concern is
about messing up my system.. It is running fine now and I am afraid I will
cause problems that I wll not be able to correct. Right now I am leaning
towards SpyHunter. Would appreciate some suggestions.

you've used Morpheus P2P software-it has a 'java' skin-thats the kind of
theme im looking for)

Give the new value the name of the account you want to hide and set
