First post, first visit, etc.
I'm sure it's right in front of my face, but I'm still a little confused by the interface, and don't know some of the jargon, etc.
I'm looking for xp. I've got a serious problem with my computer. A virus or something damaged system files. I have no idea where the install discs are (98) and I think I need to reinstall the os. That being said, I figured I might as well go with xp, but after downloading 8 or 9 items that seemed like what I needed, they don't seem to be it.
One was some sort of porno giff, others are keygens, etc. I'm not quite sure how this works. What exactly do I need to get an installable version of xp? Do I need something called "xp activation" and a "keygen"? I tried something called an activation, it did nothing, then told me to reboot... back to damaged 98. What should I be doing that I'm not?
