One surefire way to never get a virus, spyware or really anything bad happen to your system is to just run as a Standard User instead of Admin.  It may take tweaking with some file permissions.  It is better to have XP Pro instead of Home if you are going to do this, though.

I hate it to have more than one user account at my Windows XP.
so it is always the admin account only,
okay, maybe it is a bit unsafer, but you always have the same
user experience and there is no second account, where users
from the Internet might could login into your PC.

Anyway, I just tried to run nthis check and
only get this error message:


C:\WINDOWS>sfc /scannow
Windows File Protection could not initiate a scan of protected system files.

The specific error code is 0x000006ba [The RPC server is unavailable.
].

C:\WINDOWS>



Do I have to enable some services again ?

Ubuntu ROCKS... 6 months in my laptop. So boring not dealing with spyware, viruses, high resources comsuption, etc. You can do all you do with windows. WM2D runs on ubuntu (wine) as well as many others windows programs.

Here you can see one screenshot of my desktop running wm2d at ultraspeed ;)

@Stefan

The only thing I found on the sfc /scannow problem you re having is a Windows Knowledge base information on Windows 2000 but it should also work for XP.

From what I gather, the error is due to a bad Verisgn Certificate.

My computer at the office is still on WIN98 so i cant send yu this certificate but maybe someone else can on their computer and send the certificate to you, here is the complete procedure.

********************************************

When you attempt to use the sfc /scannow command, the command may not work, and you may receive the following error message:
Windows File Protection could not be initiate a scan of protected system files. The specific code is 0x000006ba [The RPC Server is unavailable.].
Back to the top

CAUSE
This behavior can occur if the certificate for VeriSign time stamping has been removed from the computer. This certificate is listed as: "Issued To: No Liability Accepted, (c)97 VeriSign, Inc.".

To determine whether this certificate has been removed from the system, follow these steps: 1. Locate a Windows 2000-based computer that exhibits these symptoms.
2. Click Start, click Run, type mmc, and then click OK.
3. In the Microsoft Management Console, click Console, and then click Add/Remove Snap-in.
4. In the Add/Remove dialog box, click Add.
5. Click Certificates, and then click Add.
6. Click Computer Account, and then click Next.
7. Click Local Computer, and then click Finish.
8. Click Close, and then click OK.
9. In the console tree, double-click Certificates (Local Computer).
10. Double-click Trusted Root Certificate Authorities, and then click Certificates.
11. In the details pane, locate the No Liability Accepted certificate. If the certificate is missing, follow the steps in the "Resolution" section to export the certificate from another workstation and import it. 

Back to the top

RESOLUTION
To resolve this behavior, the certificate needs to be restored to the original location. To export the certificate from a Windows 2000-based computer, follow these steps: 1. Locate a Windows 2000-based computer.
2. Click Start, and then click Run.
3. In the Open box, type: MMC.
4. When Microsoft Management Console (MMC) is displayed, click Console, and then click Add/Remove Snap-in.
5. On the Add/Remove window, click Add.
6. When the list of available snap-ins are displayed, click Certificates, and then click Add.
7. Click Computer Account.
8. Click Next.
9. Click Local Computer, and then click Finish.
10. Click Close, and then click OK to close out the Add/Remove Snap-in window.
11. Under Console Root, double-click Certificates (Local Computer).
12. Double-click Trusted Root Certificate Authorities, and then double-click Certificates.
13. In the right pane, the installed certificates are displayed. Scroll down the list until you locate the No Liability Accepted certificate.
14. Right-click this certificate, click All Tasks, and then click Export.
15. On the Export Wizard, click Next, click DER encoded Library X.509, and then click Next.
16. In the File name box, enter a file name to save the file (for example, C:\Cert). A .cer extension is added to the file name.
17. Transfer this file to the computer that is receiving the error message.
When the file is transferred to the computer that is receiving the error message, follow these steps to import the file: 1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type: MMC.
3. When the MMC starts, click Console, and then click Add/Remove Snap-in.
4. On the Add/Remove Window, click Add. 
5. When the list of available snap-ins are displayed, click Certificates, and then click Add.
6. Click Computer Account.
7. Click Next.
8. Click Local Computer, and then click Finish.
9. Click Close, and then click OK to close out the Add/Remove Snap-In window.
10. Under Console Root, double-click Certificates (Local Computer).
11. Right-click Trusted Root Certificate Authorities, click All Tasks, and then click Import.
12. On the wizard, click Next, and then locate the file that you transferred from the other computer. (You may have to change the "Files of Type" field to display the X.509 certificates.)
13. When the file is selected, click Next.
14. Place the certificate in the Trusted Root Certificate Authorities Store, and then click Next.
15. Click Finish. A dialog box is displayed that indicates if the import operation had been successful or not.

Get 3 250 gb hds or 160's whatever is in the price range and run raid 5  keep a 4th one spare to rebuild if needed.  Make sure you setup your raid array in the hardware bios for it before you install an os whatever it may be. If you still are using windows i recommend setting up a separate computer p3 generation would be fine with a linux distro of your choice and have that make image files of the whole array at whatever interval deemed necessary. As well, if you don't go with the second machine for backup storage and tasking, Id still highly recommend doing the raid 5 array and then using norton ghost to make image backups to another device. Only surefire way to have everything set for machine the way you want it is to make a ghost image after all win updates app installs ect that you would need, do a check disk then a defrag then proceed to make your Pristine image that you can reload on that machine at will, activated and all. The raid takes care of hardware failure if that happens just pop a new drive in and rebuild

Yes, this is great.  XP has been around for years (years of de-bugging and fixes) and this is what I run. Can you imagine the crap that VISTA has that will take years to de-bug?  No thanks...I am staying with XP and Ubuntu on a dual boot setup.

I like and admire Bill Gates but geeze, if you are supposed to be the best in the business with all of those resources, why do we always seem to get not ready for prime time software releases?

Stefan:  The people here have already given you much better advice than I.  I will say I run Zonealarm (the free one) and it is fine once you learn to tell it what to do, and, more important, what not to do.  Many programs out there have a conflict with zonealarm so you have to be careful.  As far as the "firewall" that comes with XP?  Useless in my opinion.

Bill

SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop by Novell is awesome. Why waste so much time trying to custumize, when Novell has done a fantastic job.

@Harti : if you are having so many serious problems with your install of XP .. just wipe out your OS drive partition, and install XP Pro with DEFAULT settings, DONT use XPLite, it will only create headaches if you are not advanced at using it.

Once you have (1) installed, and used a (2) key (if it is a pirate, then just use the crack patches already available on the net.), (3) install all the drivers etc. THEN (4) install SP2 (you can get a copy of this on the net without even going to windows update page).

once that is done, download DirectX, java, flash, etc and install.

About IE, I have found Firefox to have issues with certain sites, IE comes in handy every once in a while.

When you have a chance, try out Novell's SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SUSE LED).

I never use the XP activation because it's just stupid to do so. I change components in my PC almost every month. Every time I do that, windows will want to be activated and I'd have to call M$ to activate it. So I'll pass. I bypassed their activation and everything is more then fine.
