    A little ways into all my installations a blue screen comes up that says Unable to write to drive C:\. This happens about 10% of the way through. Another weird thing happens when i boot up, every single time it starts scan disk saying that i have had an improper shut-down(i seem to be shuting down ok). Thanks for the help!!

    From Texas with love.

    Get free Zone Alarm personal firewall anti-hacker countermeasure from http://www.zonelabs.com. (not the demo) Don't let anything out to the Internet you don't know what it is.

    Update your antivirus, temporarily disable your screen saver and scan with your anti-virus set to scan All Files. Update and scan bi-monthly. Create your anti-virus' Rescue disk(s) and update them after each Windows anti-virus update.

    You can scan on-line to double-check your Windows scanner at http://housecall.antivirus.com
