    Problems With XP

    Haha, I got a copy of XP Pro build 2002 for free from something at school and saved it for the PC that I was building at the time (this one actually, and this was around December). Anyways I thought it was pretty cool, but everytime I let it run for more than a day it would pop up with a blue screen saying that the Registry (or the hive file actually) had become corrupted and told me to reboot to try a repair. This was some bs b/c it couldnt repair and would always result in needing to format the drive. I know everything was up-to date (drive wise, and window's updates) and this was really ........ing me off. After about 12 formats I decided to go back and just use a copy of 98se i had lying around. Im thinking about putting XP back on here to see if it will co-operate with me now Has anyone had any similar problems or other problems? I seemed to have escaped the video card problem thankfully. Has Microcrap released any new Window's updates? Or anyone know about when SP1 is to be released?

    It was probbly because it wasn't quite the final release yet.
    And it downloads a new update patch about once a week.
    If you own a piece of land and there is an volcano on it and it ruins a
    nearby town, do you have to pay for the property damage?
