    For the past week or so, I have been having some rather serious issues with
    my laptop...For whatever reason, I am unable to access anything that is a
    java-based application. Also, there are certain apps on my windows XP that
    no longer function properly (i.e. when i try to "run" or "search" for
    something, it doesn't work). My windows media player doesn't work either, i
    had to disable it completely, there was some internal error that stopped it
    from playing anything, audio OR video. As a matter of fact, I'm writing this
    message on my roomate's computer. I was unable to sign onto my .net passport
    on my computer. Here is basically a chronological listing of what has taken
    place, considering my computer, in the last week or so: About two weeks ago,
    Norton Internet Security started becoming a pain, not working properly,
    reporting of some type of internal error. I tinkered with it a little bit,
    and finally got rid of it, because every time I tried to re-install it, it
    wouldn't do it. Anyway, I replaced it a couple days later with Mcafee's
    Ad-aware and software called Spyware Doctor, to combat spyware. Also, early
    last week, our local internet service provider (time warner cable) came to
    switch over the connection to my other roomate's name, since our former
    roomate was moving out. I figured I'd mention it, even though I doubt it has
    anything to really do with it. Who knows, maybe they screwed something up on
    their end. Anyway, I suspect that somehow, someway, my operating system got
    srewed up, and I don't know how to fix it. I need some help, if someone out
    there has a clue as to what might be the deal with my computer, I'd
    appreciate it if you could give me some feedback. Just so it's put out, yes,
    I have java intalled, and all that other stuff.
