As I talked about yesterday, I had a virus. I decided that I would get rid of my pirated operating system, and buy a copy of Windows XP Home Edition OEM. No tech support, but nearly $100 cheaper made it a good buy. Once I started the reinstall, it went as smooth as possible. No burps, no hiccups, and all my previous partition problems with Windows 2000 were gone.
I am glad I decided to get a legit copy in the end.
