Now if all we could do was make a virus that would compleatly fuck up servers that run pop-ups that would be wonderfull... if we had those nerdy geeks who make a virus to fuck shit up on other peoples pc because they are getting picked on at school actually working to kill the bane of the internet the pop-ups they may be hail'd as champs for once... well looks like is back to the pumblings of lunch time for those little virus making ring pirates....
i say this because well i can i guess thats one reason i love this place...
the only other thing i can say is
I've installed SP2 on countless computers since it's release, all varying greatly in their hardware specs and usage (some were clean installs, some were on heavily used pc's that had XP installled long ago). I'm yet to see or hear of a single problem with any of them.
A microsoft rep made a visit the other week and happened to mentioned how certain types of malware/spyware can cause an SP2 installation to fail or cause problems. Just make sure the computer is absolutely clear of all viruses and spyware, and make sure nothing is running in the background before installing SP2 and you shouldn't have any problems.
But anyway, just use mozilla's Firefox browser and be done with it. It's still better than IE6 under SP2 anyway. I can't remember the last time i saw a popup on my computer. :)
errrrrrrrr this might sound weird but then again when dont i sound weird but yeh anyway i got my first pop up with mozilla.
it was weird cuz it was an ad to remove adaware and malware. anyone have any ideas??
