hey thanks jcortes, while goin through the guide I've noticed that I haven't got access to the internet as no icons appear in the taskbar apart from the time. So I was unable to download the programs suggested. I d/l them on my laptop and transfered them over but I cannot run applications either they have that misc type of icon like its not associated to anything.
I ran the programs I already had on there (i.e ad-aware, spybot n ccleaner) but no change.
Any ideas on how to run the install files? Or methods..
