On a seperate issue, my computer has been so slow for as long as I can remember and i've tried all kinds of suggestions from people on forums such as this one including posting various hijack this logs and running all kinds of spyware scans etc, which didn't ever help.
Well my computer is now running SO much faster! My dad done two things to my machine. Im not sure which one played the main role though.
Firstly he installed and ran a program called 'advanced windows care'.
The other thing he done was what i think played the major role. He stumbled across a site run be a 'networking expert' who suggested changeing lots of various settings on the network on both computers. Unfortunately i dont know what ones but hopefully this thread will inspire other computer wizards to step up and make it common knowledge and be specific about whcih setting to change to what and how to find them, etc, as tampering with the network settings was NEVER suggested to me as a way to speed up my pc!
Either way it is running pretty quickly now. Like a new PC.
