    yeah…happens. happened to me too, and that too while copying a bloody 750mb file. though, it fell down to a more manageable figure pretty quickly!

    @Boris and Rach: Totally agree with Apoorv. Six years, and we get an OS which first CALCULATES, and then transfers data at a slow rate. Guess what, I’ve transferred say a 700 MB file on Vista to my pen drive, took 3 minutes; on my Linux box it took 35 seconds. :P

    Your problems name is microsoft, sorry I meant microtards(you probably know this, just in case), anyway thought about calling tech support?

    They’ll probably tell you to format your comp.(it’s called stating the obvious, Ford was right) there’s no other way to excape the virus, sigh. I wish that certain weren’t so expensive, sigh and drool.

    @Anuj: Ah, of course I knew it. Big repository of M$ insults right here. For example, how about a non-veg one, like Micro-shaft. I hope you get it. Best effect when you try to visualise Bill Gates while saying this aloud. Macbook Air, looks cool – and is something I’d never buy because I’d split it into two if I sit on it; (plus no optical drive…the list is endless)

    Yeah, probably the only reason I don’t like the MBA is because of the optical drive (or lack thereof)

    You know you can “borrow” a drive from any computer in the vicinity wirelessly, personally I would rather use my iPod for transferring the dumps. However, you have to admit this thing is way ahead of its time, maybe this is the shape of the things to come, small, sleek beautiful but powerful.

    You know opera has crashed so many times that I lost count, so does firefox and lets just not talk about ie. The weird thing is that whenever I use the a tag in opera it tends to overflow, I am sure that I close it, because when I post the same comment from another browser it works. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening?

    well thats what we call uniqueness of Windows Vista™ in which Steve Ballmer Fucking Kills™ :p or probably the result of a what happened when psychopath went jumping madly on a stage saying “Developers! Developers! Developers! Developers!” in a room full of Ballmer worshippers, sweating about 33 and a half gallons per hour!! :p (LoL just anti-Ballmer, i know he’ll Fucking Kill™ me soon xD)

    @Sakshi: Time to switch to Linux. Dual-booting, at least! Most Linux distros like Ubuntu automatically configure dual booting, so you needn’t worry about that.

    @Punit: Yeah, but they could’ve sorted it out in the SIX YEARS they spent making it.

    @Japmeet: Hey, nice to see ya here. ;) Yeah, f*** BALLmer.
