  1. The program you are referring to is Roxio EZ CD Creator. I think you've got a pretty good idea of things that you want to back up already. Yes, if you would like to keep those emails, I would back them up as well. Also, what I did was backup the installation files of the programs I downloaded from the net to Zone Alarm, Adaware, Spybot S&D, AVG....just for example. This way, I can reinstall them and be protected before I connect myself back onto the internet. If you use Firefox or any other browser, don't forget to back up those installation files and your bookmarks as well.

  2. I oficially made myself one of the ginnea pigs as well today. I installed SP2 on my XP Professional desktop. I have to say that the installation went smoothly and without fault. As most people did, I also noticed some speed difference in my computer's performance, but not like others have. My speed difference was the opposite....that's right, it's running FASTER! (I don't get it.....) There is no speed diffference while I am doing my usual operating of my system, but on shutting down the computer, I noticed it's about 1/3 faster than it was before. Booting up, I've noticed that the process is also about 1/3 faster, and that no other changes were made to my system, so it couldn't have been anything else I did......go figure.

    I'll try and keep you all up to date on how my SP2 PRO system is doing. I have the Home edition on my laptop, but I'm not stupid enough to update that one a few months, I might be though.

  3. LOL I didn't get confused one bit. I'ts been a while since I've worked with that vers of windows and DOS. I do remember that my I also had two "autoexec.bat" and was told that both were needed, but I'm no expert there.

    As for automatically going into windows, I don't know how to change that. I always had to type in WIN to get it going after booting into dos.

  4. From all the talk I've seen about SP2, most people are waiting about a month so the other ginnea pigs can have all the "fun" for them. I need to reformat my harddrive anyway, so after I have backed up all my data, I plan to make myself one of those ginnea pigs for PRO's SP2 (which is due out today by the way). I'll test it for a few weeks and see how it goes. This way, if it does anything to my computer, I don't have to worry about it since I already backed up all my data and have been planning to reformat anyway.

    Let's hear it for the ginnea pigs! LOL

  5. I agree. I also thing we should just keep it down to the few places where HJT classrooms already are for now. I think it would be best to make sure there are enough trustworthy and knowledgeable experts before branching out too much.

    I know my journey through the HJT classroom may be a bit slow and long journey due to school starting back up, but I look forward to the learning process.
