Hey guys,I'm back.(sort of)
I am logged in on my buddy's computer right now,just wanted to let you know what's going on.I got an email from one of my friends last week,but little did he know it had a bad virus in it ,and it went through my whole computer.I have a neighbor who is really good with computers, and he has had to "wipe" my entire computer,everything gone.I have gotten rid of Windows and am now in the process of having him put Ubuntu Linux on instead.The thing is he is quite busy,so it is taking a little time.I should be back up and running by Saturday.As I said,I just wanted to fill you guys in on my situation.Talk to you guys later.

Glad to hear you have your arms around this.
A bid of a learning curve but I think you will like.
Just remember to never log on as root unless needed.
