Not really! I just wanted to boast a little and show if left alone, XP is extremely stable and keeps on chugging! I have my dad's 6 year old, AMD XP2500+, BOINC cruncher that refuses to die. It runs 24/7 with 100% CPU utilization 100% of the time. Microsoft has a neat little command line program called Uptime for NT - but it works fine on XP too. It will tell you how long your system has been up. 101 Days! :21::21::21: But, , the last round of Windows Updates wants a reboot - so it keeps yelling at me so it can complete. If interested in that Uptime program, I recommend you make a shortcut to run it - it's a lot easier that way. I have an Uptime shortcut on my QuickLaunch toolbar. To make your own, Save uptime.exe to the c:\windows\system32 folder on your boot drive (use correct path if not defaults) Right click on bare Desktop and select: New > Shortcut In "Type the location of the item:" enter (or cut from here and paste): C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\cmd.exe /k uptime.exe Click Next In the Name text box, enter an appropriate name, such as: Uptime Click "Finish" and your shortcut will appear on your Desktop Option: drag and drop on to QL toolbar or Start Menu.
