yes , I did set it. but when my system started all of this. I just put in another harddrive and installed it.then I installed windows. 1 is my master and 2 is my slave.that is why I was just going to put the one new harddrive in to start all over and use these two to see what programs I need to reinstall.I would set each one up as a slave and download/ install the software I want. then wipe out which ever one I would want to keep as a slave for backing up my downloads and passwords,keys for my programs I purchased.

If you are going to do that, you could install with one drive installed, put XP and the programmes on, then install the second drive as the slave and keep the data on it

Does it go blank if you click this

Make sure that BITS and the Automatic Updates service are started. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, click Run, type services.msc, and then click OK.

2. In the list of services, right-click Automatic Updates, and then click Properties.

3. In the Startup type list, click Automatic, and then click Apply.

4. If Service status is set to Stopped, click Start, and then click OK.

5. Right-click Background Intelligent Transfer Service, and then click Properties.

6. In the Startup type list, click Manual, and then click Apply.

7. If Service status is set to Stopped, click Start, and then click OK.

I tried the above and i get a error 1084 . says it cant be done in safe mode.they are stopped by the way.while I was waiting for your help I went to the event viewer under administrative tools and noticed that there is a exclamation mark by a error that relates to saying that my cd rom has a bad block.what does that mean. should I just disconnect both of them to see if it goes away . can I clear that area under administrative tools through the menu?
