Or Linux Redhat, Debian, Mandrake take your pick.

Although for gaming XP cannot be beaten, which is of course why I am running XP of my main system.

SuSE looks to be very promising for the home user, and the plus, so far, is that it is owned and developed by a major corporation, Novell. SuSE 9.1 is pretty user-friendly. I'd be curious to see what Novell can cook up for version 10.

But yeah...only dual-boot systems for me, for now.

Nup, this 98 is the last Windows this comp is going to see.
As soon as it is entirely obsolete, I'm going to dig out the Commodore64 and sit on my arse in front of the tv as opposed to the comp
I protest selling more of my soul to the satan spawn which is MS.

Techie2000 I got no idea what half of these things are, but it looks rather nifty anyway

printray.exe is a program for your lexmark printer.
loadpowerprofile is your computer's power management
loadqm.exe is msn queue manager loader (not a virus)
regshave cleans up some registry entries after or before installation of software from fuji.
scanregw.exe is a windows program that checks for errors when you boot up.
systray.exe is a microsoft program too, it runs the system tray, which is where the clock is displayed. it also runs all the program icons.
taskmon.exe is the windows task optimizer. it's used by the defrag program so programs and files you access will run faster.

so none of those programs are a virus. (don't think i'm a computer genius or anything, i just googled them.)

Yeah, they all look good to me. Nothing different in any of the other tabs?
