    Anyone know any good video makers?

    Windows Movie Maker sucks. That's all there is to it. Any good reccomendations?

    Really? I dunno, why would it take that long? Or is there any way to stop it from doing that? Other than that, yeah, I reinstalled, but nothing happened. . .

    Lol xD But yes, in fact, I do those things pretty frequently. Right now I'm running a virus scan, but half the time it turns up empty or with some dumb little doubleclick or castale media thing. . . I'll try and run CCleaner now, see what it finds. EDIT: Ran CCleaner, Azureus still refuses to run.

    Essential Windows Programs

    Ares, gotta have my music and videos. Kapsersky Anti-Virus 6.0, obvious reasons. Spybot S&D and Ad-Aware 2006 are a must-have (I think 2007 is pretty much the same save for a few new features and more memory being eaten up). Windows Defender, buggy as it sometimes is rumored to be. Jasc Paint Shop Pro X. It can do whatever Photoshop can, but it's cheaper. ^.~ CCleaner. Love that program. Cleans up registry problems and get rids of annoyances like temporary files and things. Also enables you to uninstall programs and configure startup. Must-have for me. Quicktime and Winamp. And last but not least, Winzip.

    Windows help.

    This has been going on for awhile now. I don't know why it happens, and I honestly don't know how, but sometimes when I install applications and then run them, they never start. (for example, double clicking a shortcut to Graal to have the mouse look like it's loading and then after it's done -- nada) This has just happened with Azureus. I tried to start it, it said it was loading, and then nothing happened afterwards. I'd really like to know what's going on, and if possible, not to have to uninstall and reinstall because I'm not sure if my options in there will be the same. I've been using it for awhile now and then it randomly decided to not start; I even went into its program folder and tried running the application itself, not the shortcut, and I still got nothing. Heck, I even made a new shortcut. Can someone help me? I'll provide you with whatever information about my computer, what I'm running, etc., if it's needed. Currently I'm running a Dell Dimension E510, Microsoft Windows XP SP2, Intel Pentium D CPU 2.80 GHz, 512 MB RAM, RADEON X300/X550 series. Firewall is ZoneAlarm Pro, virus scanner is Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0. Any and all help is appreciated. ^.^'
