Thanks, guys! My 'puter box is remote from my keyboard and display. I'll change that so I can check it more easily.

Thanks again!

Just wondering.....
Because I am an IT GOD. OK no really when I would fire up chrome my hard drive would just go nuts the whole time I had it on. having a laptop you can hear it better than a desktop unless you have some noise azz drives. Then you get to see the bright blue LED shining in your face as well. I installed chrome hdd goes nuts uninstall it back to normal. Not sure what it was really doing just that it was doing something that I didn't want it to do. I am slightly parinoid as well so I just got done reinstalling windows XP. She was due for an over haul anyways it has been about 6 months since I reinstalled XP. Now she is purring along nice and fast. With zero icons on my desktop.

If you want to know whats going on on your network get a packet sniffer like ethereal aka wireshark. Be careful with these as many companies do not like it when you run these on their network. That is the one I use the most and it is one of the best.
