Hmmm, you have an OEM install. That is more n likely the problem. Those
morons don't know how to properly configure stuff. I've got a nice and clean
install without any of the OEM gunk that they ALWAYS put on.

<tip type="Machine OS setup" author="Ron white">
If at all possible, when you get a new machine, make a boot disk from the
CDROM that came with it and then do a clean install of the OS. Format the
harddrive and if its going to be NT or 2K make sure its NTFS. The OEM's too
often format it as FAT32 which is not ideal for them to run on.
