Second the "reinstall" suggestion -- if you have the ability, it will probably only take 1 CD to copy off all your Word documents and whatnot, though it can get to be a pain if you have a bunch of MP3s or big media files. It's a bit advanced, but if you can add another hard drive or repartition your current one, you'd only have to wipe out the drive with the operating system on it, which can save a lot of grief. Whether you already have it set up like that or not, in future it's always a good idea to have an "OS" drive and a "data" drive, so you can nuke one without affecting the other.

And let me just say on the Schiavo thing: that defies fucking belief. I was 100% on the parent's side -- this is the kind of uber-creep thing I'd expect from Michael. I respect the financial hardships of a drawn-out legal battle, and it couldn't be for a better cause, but you don't pay for it by walking up to Satan himself and asking for a few bucks. Jesus.
