    Hi all.

    I'm experiencing several problems. I'll try my best to walk thru each one slowly.

    1st) Windows XP won't download files over 494Mb or for over 1hr. Hard to tell which as with my DSL 1 hr of downloading is about 1hr. I decided to move back to Win2K pro. Which is where my second problem started.

    2) I've got more spyware than I currently know what to do with. I've been able to get a grasp on the situation by using Ad-Aware, Spybot S&D, and AVG Anti-Virus. My problem is there are a few registry keys that none of these programs can delete nor can I delete them manually.

    The specific key is :
    HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-861567501-1417001333-725345543-1000
    and
    HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-861567501-1417001333-725345543-1000_classes

    It appears that the rest of whatever is on my system is linked to these 2 reg entries.

    I'm impartial to using either 2K pro or XP pro. If I could get the downloads to work properly then I'd use XP pro. Either way I'm on a fresh install of 2K pro and it's been spyware hell. Funny I got the spyware getting my Windows Updates.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
