Man, last night I was up till like 3am (woulda been 2 w/o daylight savings :P) re-installing windows on my friends PC. Seems every time I’m over something is going goofy with it. This time, if he tried to open any windows to browse the files on his comp, the whole thing would stall. Yet other apps would start up and run ok. So, I started up iTunes, and burned 8 MP3 CDs to save his music at least, then re-created C: and re-installed Windows XP.
I think it was malware or a virus that messed up his comp, using IE to surf the net seems quite dangerous to me, so I recommended he install Firefox, and use that from now on. This is one of the few reasons I am happy macs are not as popular as windows PCs. Small Target.
