well, i only have one piece of hardware plugged in that I can remove and still have the pc run! (tv card) - although I should run it without the usb modem too! I'll give it a trial run today and report back this evening

I'm pretty sure it's not the zotob worm - I've removed the partition since then and reformatted twice - it'd have to be pretty resilient! AVG hasn't picked it up either and it's on their list...

can i ask a stupid question please? how do i check it at microsoft?
