    I would say no, but I would invest in some spelling and grammar lessons.

    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
    bemanistyle.com to dl more songs
