I will say the same thing I said in your last thread you made.

Buy your XP Pro so you can upgrade to SP2 there are too many downsides to bootleg. I also will say the same about the computer, perhaps you should buy a new one a cheap one if you must I think your current PC cannot be saved.

with the price that you spend on buying upgrades, you might as well just buy a new computer.
