Getting cheap installs of Win7

Cheap installs? What?

Assuming you aren't being sarcastic, I'm saying getting legit install discs of Windows 7 might not be too cumbersome.

Depends how much a blank DVD costs + ~4 GB of bandwidth.

Otherwise, all the copies of the same version are having the same price, or a higher one, so there isnt a real legit solution.
Last year, I dreamt I was pissing at a restroom, but I missed the urinal and my penis exploded.

You can get it cheap here, to order the backup discs it does cost a little extra, but its still a bargain.   The catch is you have to choose between 32bit and 64bit as opposed to buying it from microsoft twice as much and getting both.

I can guarantee its legitimacy because this is where I got it from (all you need is a university or TAFE student to let you buy it through them)

Laptop radiaton....can it make you sterile if you have a laptop directly perpendicular to your happy trail? My desktop has been really flaky lately and I can't afford new/better parts so I've spending a lot of time with my lappy. I need to know if it's a bad idea keeping it on my lap instead of on something.

Laptop...radiation?  Last time I checked my laptop didn't have a gamma ray installed aiming at my crotch.  You are no more vulnerable than the occupants of your local Wi-Fi cafe :P

Your children might be more vulnerable to trojans however.

Is there a way to download large quantities of pictures, such as, say, all the pictures in a certain folder on my myspace account? Saving one picture at a time seems like a waste of life.

But that just leaves me a series of links to download. It's like the same thing, or am I missing the point?

If it's just a few then this is pretty good.

So I have my new HD installed and all, now all I need to do is get to have everything on it.
All the other solutions are annoying, and I found yet another way to get it working how I want it, basically clone the hard drive.

Anyone know of a good program to use? There are plenty of programs out there, but I don't want to go through them all to find one that does a straight clone, from HD to HD, no fluffing around making backups and then restoring them to another HD.

You guys have been helping me along the way, and I really appreciate all your efforts. I like messing around with computers, and fixing problems without taking it to a rip off computer shop that puts all these crap programs and messes around with your homepage is much better.

So yeah:

A virus is setting up proxy servers so that it denies me from browsing the web, when I disabled proxy servers in Opera it worked (derp,) so is there any way to disable proxy servers completely?
