So goodbye yellow brick road...
Bye bye .
I don't need to know everything, I just need to know where to find it, when I need it.
You can still use it if you want....provided you have an overall good security setup (AV alone isn't enough in this case)...

Thanks Leo.....why was there such a reluctance to move to service pack 3 for xp users or was this just companies..
I went to hospital in Dublin and the admin was using windows 98
Yeah, I will probably keep XP for as long as I have this PC. I've also brought an older model PC back to life, that runs Windows 98 and made it a dual boot with Puppy Linux. Windows 98 was always one of my favorite OS's and I suppose its kind of a nostalgia thing for me.
