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...:p

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 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.
