Chris... you're an animal. Rebooting sounds like a good idea. But that's no joke. Baby's get 7 colds per year! You're immune system will suck, but maybe that's the point.
I hate to point this out, but when I reboot my old POS win 98 machine the thing is still jacked up when it loads windows. Let just say a virus get's your immue system out of whack so that it attacks MSers. Who's to say that same virus does not stay in your body and retrigger your immue system to get jacked up again?
