Have a look at http://www.cyberpowerpc.co.uk/ it's where I got my laptop - it's very light, thin, fast + powerful. That dell sounds good, but the new ones are known to be a bit chunky.

Really? I didn't know spyware could do that! Actually, why would spyware want to to that anyway? :S

I only have £500 to spend. Those notebooks all look really good, but I can't see one for under £500.

To be honest, I want something a little chunky. This one I have now it an ultra-lightweight or something, ultra-portable... ultra-something anyway. I'm worried I'm going to break it when opening it, or break it when I carry it about it's so light. And it doesn't have a CD/DVD drive built-in, it's a USB thing that you have to plug-in (I wasn't told that when I bought it) which is really annoying.

Ahh, then maybe you could look at an Acer or something. They are very good build quality and are mainly quite big anyway. I bought one in 2004 that still going now after numerous drops.

Well it was way back in the Me days like I said. But it made a lasting impression on me. Imagine all your non program related icons turned in that stupid one. But I still wonder how they did it; because like I say the standard and the non-standard icons are all in a file called shell and that one wasn't there.

Maybe they changed some obscure setting somewhere (maybe in the registry?) that changed the location of the standard and non-standard icons to somewhere else?

:S I dunno. Confused. Thanks for the help anyway. :whistling:
