    Downloading in XP

    I feel realy dumb asking this, but im downloading a game, and i knwo that apps keep running in XP if you just choose, "switch user" So, if im downoading through IE, i could "switch user" and continue the download? its at least another 2 hours long, and if someone else uses the comp, it would still download, right? Even if it slowed.
    The only good thing about freezing beyond feeling in the final Nordic ski race was that I couldn't feel that tumble I did going about 30 mph, maybe more.
    On the other hand, not feeling any part of my body for 30 minutes was scary, especialy for my manhood.

    Windoze: XP, hate it, though its more stable than my old 98SE
    Dream: linux, mandrake, then slackware.

    No..It hink It will stop...If you lock the computer it will complete...

    Well...thats only what I think

    But the think is that winxp saves the apps running for the user in memory...don't know if thats a hazard to security...internet packages from another session running trhough another session

    well, i had to go, and it completed the download, but all i did was hit the windoz key and the L key, to get to the switch user screen.

    If you switch users, the d/l will continue. I know this because its happened on my PC with KaZaA.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah
