I did notice the results of thet yesterday. ZA Pro crashed every time I opened IE. But I rebooted and it stabilized.

Its behind a hardware firewall in the router anyway.

Router firewalls are a huge help, Glad you're stable!

Mine has a mode where you can give the impression that the computer is open. It gets a hit every couple of minutes from anywhere and everywhere

The Unix range of operating systems cruise off that problem by eliminating the Windows registry OS root type system core It is true It's a fact

I'm set up as dual boot 2000/Suse9.1
Don't see Suse very often for what I do.

I dualboot windows xp and freebsd.

I actually had a 33MHz (thirty-three) for years setup on freebsd that ran as a firewall routing my network traffic for a 100mb network, and my mail server. It was running on a 100MB hard drive without a screen and ran flawlessly for years without a problem. I'd love to see a Redmound product do that. Pwnt. haha

When I was doing contract service on Novell systems for Y2K I found a server that had been running for almost 4 years.

Services had been added and started that had never been recorded in the logs and the admin box was an old Windows 3.1 hidden in a back office. But still running!
