    how are you formating it? is it one of them prebuilt PCs (like a dell) that only have a recovery disc instead of an actual windows installation disc? the only true way to completly format your PC is to put in a full windows install disc and format it with that (there are other ways but this way is easyest if your going to install windows). it will take about 2 hours to format depending on the size of your HDD. once thats done you will have no virus's, spyware, adware, or anything like that unless you act stupid when using the internet (havent formated my PC in about 7 months. ive gotten about 3 virus's which my antivirus detected and deleted before they could do anything)

    I've been considering switching to Linux, Windows is just one headache after another. Of course switching would come with it's own headaches (leaving behind Office, etc.), so I'm hesitant. But given how annoying Windows can be, I'm starting to think it'd be a good idea.



    I never add friend codes.

    Pretty simple. Get a Mac, or install Linux. You definetly shouldn't install Mac on your PC unless you work for Apple and have their permission as that would be illegal. (wink, wink for all you dumb people) You can install Windows (I wouldn't because I hate it and I have it on my PC anyway) using BootCamp or you can emulate it through parallels and you can run Windows inside a window in OS X. It doesn't work too well and a lot of programs won't work properly, but you can use DarWine (Mac) or Wine (Linux) so that you can run some Windows apps in OS X or Linux. I know how you feel though, I can't stand Windows. I've been turning my PC on and booting into Windows (I usually use it for Linux) to play Guild Wars and it makes me want to shoot myself every time. I just have a Mini for now, and it is ok and good enough to hold me over until Leopard comes out and I get a maxed out MacBook Pro.
