I installed the windows xp pro from the OEM. I didn't use the disk that came with the used computer. Did I mess up?

No you didn't all is fine.

wanabe1 means. download Eset to your laptop. Next, you will burn a CD. If your laptop dosen't have a burner and you have another machine do it there. OR, you can disconnect your laptop, connect the desktop you just rebuilt. Download Eset, install. make sure you do the updates.

Ok guys I'm getting confused.

wannabe1, I don't understand what you want me to d/l.
I guys want me to connect to the internet. That will take a little time to get IE set up and ready to go. After that I will come back and see what you want me to do then. Right now I'm a bit confused.

Ok, I don't know what is going on, but it won't take my password that it gave me. So any other suggestions?

Hang on a few...let me try the install on a machine here. This is a new version and I'll see if the install has changed. It didn't ask for a password for the trial on the versions I've installed before.

Did you copy and paste the user name and password from the e-mail when it asked for them?

These must be exact....and are case sensitive.

The way it is set up I can only copy and paste one. But I typed it in just as it is. I also copied and pasted the password and that is the one that it says is wrong.

It says I either entered the wrong password or my browser doesn't know how to supply the credentials required.

I can say with ALL certianty that I type in the correct password.

I am not running IE 7. I am running what was on here when I installed windows.

I am taking the time to install IE7.

If you will bear with me for a moment or two, I will have it done and maybe that is the problem.

Thank you again guys.

My ISP is apparently still having issues...I've got a very slow download speed at the moment. It's still downloading.
