    I just clean-installed Windoze XP on an AMD/Athlon 2.2G
    machine that I was sold on having a Bad-a-s graphics processor(Nvidia
    N-Force 2 chipset), blah, blah, blah.

    ISSUE 1! I can't get Windows Media Player to go Full-screen. The
    other players do it fine, and the latest Winamp plays video, so I can
    at least still play my MPEGS, but it is annoying that Media Player
    won't do under XP what it did in 98.

    ISSUE 2! eversince I first installed XP, I have gotten this message
    that looks like an MSN message, but is an ad for a pop-up-blocking
    service. It looks just like an MSN message, but I made sure that MSN
    was turned off. I then D/L'd Ad-Aware, then scanned my machine, which
    got rid of 10 items (and the machine was only 4 hours old... scary)
    Sure enough, the message came back. Anyone have any experience with

    It just happened again. It is an ad for I
    cannot see any other programs running, is there a way to see all the
    things running on my computer at any given time?any help would be
    greatly appreciated. Thanks
