I couldn't figure how to name the title so let me get down to it: Well one thing I didn't notice till this morning was: It seems my system loses performance over time even under idle. There is nothing on the power settings to reduce it and there is pretty much no reason for that to happen. And at first I thought it was just by certain 2 programs, but it seems it happens reguardless of the programs including games where I can play for about 1-2 hours before noticing lag for no reason. Lets take it a step further: I didn't even notice that despite the fact I was logged in as administrator, I was REALLY logged in as administrator. It seems my father didn't even notice when he installed Win XP Pro that it failed to ask about what would the first login name be. It is kind of an issue there because that shouldn't happen that way. I realised this because a game I had an issue with before back on my laptop had a weird but easy fix: Make a new user account. By doing so, that is how I found out. The other issue: Now I can't log back in to the administrator account and if I recall correctly, the only other way is through safe mode unless someone out there knows of a way to fix this. So I was also thinking of possibly just reinstalling Windows XP pro my way and slowly but surely get the system up and running and making sure all things work correctly. Here is my last issue: While I would want to re-install XP Pro on my system, the big issue at hand is: I have Vista on a seperate partition. While that isn't a big deal, the thought is that how would I restore the dual boot with Vista? And if it can't be restored as in if I have to reinstall vista on the other partition, would my registration key still work or not? I think that is it. Hopefully there will be some replies..
