Everything you'd ever need to know about malware prevention and removal.

Also, if you have cable internet some slow speeds are to be expected.(during peak hours.)

you could just reformat your hard drive to start fresh if you don't mind.
then regularly do a disk clean up, defrag, get a firewall, an internet cookie cleaner, & anti-virus program.

Not that hard but takes time.

After that, download Mozilla Firefox here:

http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/0.10.1/Firefox Setup 1.0PR.exe

Install it, and use this for surfing the web instead of Internet Explorer. This will prevent spyware and vriuses from being installed when you surf the web.
By using this as opposed to IE, your system will never bog down again.
BAH!!!
Service pack 2 does just fine. Your freeware bullshit can suck a big one. Godamn computer nerds.....SHOO!! SHOO!! theres some jolt cola over on the highway go find it.

Sure, if you like malware and security holes. SP2 isn't the answer to MSs security flaws, it only addresses a few problems. You don't need to be a "computer nerd", just to practice good security.

Amen, Jungie. I'm installing updates for my main box right now.

Server 2003 may be insecure, but it still is WAY more secure than XP. I have only had a about 14 or so updates since it came out.

My Cisco PIX box(501) at home makes everything alright.;) I still dont' see why XP Pro is so bad(relative), but that's a different conversation.
