    Well folks, I finally got round to putting XP on my computer after getting so sick of ME *shudders* crashing every two minutes and finally breaking completely on Saturday (fortunately I'd backed up all 6gig of music). So, now i have a nice, clean, freshly formatted hard disc and this was the first programme I installed.(obviously)
    I was wondering though, what other programmes are essential for me to get first? Anyone got any suggestions?
