    just think about it....anything with "format c:" in it would have to do something horrible to your hard drive...

    very true. autoexec.bat autoexecutes and it will just format your Computer once you reboot...
    so, i would NOT recommend trying it...

    Actually, that's not the reason it wouldn't ask you...

    And anyway, they're all wrong...anyone who's intelligent enough should be able to plainly see that it creates a beautiful screensaver for you.

    dude quit lying to this guy.

    Unregistered, that line is a special line in autoexec.bat. When you put it in there it destroys the speed lock. You see, you can only run your processor at 233 MHz, any higher is just a waste, because Windows doesn't recognize it. Putting that line in your autoexec.bat lets windows recognize it.

    Basic computer science.

    Well I thought he would know it was a joke, maybe next time I will make it more clear by using the [joke] [/joke] tags.

    did you not read the rest of my post? It was a joke as well, I was joking when I said quit lying.

    You would never last on Era Online's forums. It's a neverending flame war. It's fun, I tick people off on purpose. The new board is toned down a lot though, the most flaming on the new board is "I'm going to kick your asses! j00 better watch out b4 I h4x()rz on yur computer!". I had the link to the old boards somewhere, but I lost it when my HD crashed a month ago. I don't know if the old ones are even up.
