    OK, WTF is my problem with Windows?

    Just reinstalled a fresh version of Win2000 Pro. And its the weirdest thing. I cant drag n drop files, paste files (I CAN copy and cut them though??). And I cant click on links in interent explorer (i can but they wont work). Anyone know what might cause this weird problem and/or how to fix it. (if not i will reinstall, but i dont want to yet)

    thats an easy one.. windows is your problem

    but seriously, the DCOM exploit tends to kill things as drag and drop and the clipboard. I've seen people get exploited 5 minutes after being online. Make sure you have a firewall and your up 2 date with your patches.

    it still did windows update though, and everything is goin good now , but just curious before all those things happened it said svchost created an error and was shut down, could this be why. And after win update and a firewall installed the firewall asked me if i wanted to allow internet access to svchost and i said . no. never. Is this ok? seems to be so far
