Well I tried the opus tweak, and I got thru the first set of changes (the ones where you change back to classic windows display, and change your virtual memory, and a bunch of other stuff) Well when I re-started I kept getting a bunch of error messages that wouldnt go away and eventually got so many that I couldnt do anything. I tried everything and couldnt figure it out. I tried safe mode to change the settings back but it wouldnt even let me go into that. So needless to say after awhile it wouldnt even start windows on startup so I had to reformat my HD and reinstall windows XP. So I guess I did something wrong. By the way I was thinking this tweak is for a fresh install of XP, and I was doing it on a dell that had a bunch of crap(factory installed programs) on it already, is that a prob. The computer is only 3 weeks old, so I didnt have to much as far as audio on there, but it was still a pain in the ass. I guess the only good thing now is I have a fresh install of XP and if I can pick and choose which factory ones I want to put back on there.
