A couple of things

A couple of things:

1: For the love of all the gods that have been, are, and will be... Get a spellcheck! Perfection isn't required, but that is REALLY bad.

2: This particular horse has been beaten into a very fine paste with all the previous discussions on the topic, so learn to use a search engine

3: Since you pirated a copy of XP, this is all the more help you're going to get here. Frankly, it's more than you deserve.
