78. I've got avast and spyware blaster
and just using the stupid microcrap firewall for now.

I used to use spybot search and destroy, but i don't like it much anymore. they seemed to have messed it up. :shrug:

And I have photoshop 7 that won't load for some reason. Still messing around with it. Maybe I'll get lucky and figure out what the problem is.

Do you know what the difference is between "program files" and "program files (x86)" is? That's got me stumped.
