1. reboot in "last known good configuration"..doubt that'll make a difference tbh
2. do a repair install of windows XP (found the disk for it yayyy)
3. reinstall windows xp and start fresh. there is a problem with it registering sometimes. plus some of the software i have is from giveawayoftheday.com and i don't have those license keys anymore.
4. just say "fuck it" and deal with it until i can get a 'new' computer.
all in all i'm just gonna get a 'new' computer anyway, so why bother trying to fix it? it runs so-so.
lol i have to do an icontest for landofart and it's due in 2 days. FFFFUUUUUUUUUU!!!! this computer shit has taken over my life since tuesday. urgh.
