    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.

    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. :rolleyes: (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.

    Everybody always posts that website, but almost everything on it is saying that Macs suck because their users are dicks. But honestly, who gives a **** about who uses the OS? And one of the things is making fun of it because there was a problem with iTunes in Windows!

    it was a joke. i think the guy jokes about everything. whichever system you use, be happy with it. i like PC's because you can right-click.

    You have been able to right click on Macs for a long time, it just isn't usually required because Apple doesn't like to hide things in the right click menu, they usually put it somewhere visible.

    I desperately need a laptop before I go to Uni. Here's hoping someone pulls out all the stops for my birthday in September and get's me a Macbook Pro *crosses fingers*

    I have no intention of getting a Mac, given my experience with iTunes (and Apple's website, which practically refuses to provide any useful answers to problems). Anyway, getting a Mac would cost lots of money and Linux is free.

    *Applaud* I hate their website. Getting a new computer and wanting to convert my ipod library to my iTunes: Lost cause. You have to pay for a software that does it to prevent piracy.

    I'm not sure if this is what you mean, but there is a free app called iDump (there are probably many more, but thats the one I use in Windows) that allows you to copy all the songs from an iPod onto your computer.
