I'd do something about your spyware problem.

I get bad spyware maybe once every 3 months on my comp. Other than that is just bad cookies.

no need to format just because it is getting fragmented a lot. it will still fragment after formatting...

stepmania id ddr for the computer

it takes a lot of space because people make song file in the sm or dwi file format.

go to stepmania.com to find out more
