you could download Linux and put that on your computer Linux is i tiny bit harder to install but well worth it i would do that if i was you i have got Red Hat 9 and that is really stable a site witch you can get it from the redhat site click here or click here they are both easy sites to downlod it from tell me if you are going to install Linux it is better than windows (i think & so do many others) so go on and install Linux instead
