comment What technical reason did Microsoft give for no Internet Explorer 9 on Windows XP?
@Synetech inc. Exactly, so what would XP users gain from upgrading to IE9? If it brings no improvement there is no point releasing it for XP. Also, I'm pretty sure most fairly modern (read: last 4 years) graphics cards support DX10, so hardware acceleration is quite a major plus.

comment My user account suddenly has a password in Windows 7
Didn't think about that at the time, but the brute force method is at least more interesting to do. Also, it works for all accounts, including Admin accounts. As people who read this question may be locked out of the Admin account, this is a more useful answer.

Yup, just installed it and I was surprised it even remembered passwords and the order of my Favourites in the Favourites bar. Must say, it does seem faster. Not sure whether that's because it's new and different or because it is genuinely faster though!

Could you go to www.speedtest.net and run the broadband speed test? Click the 'Copy Direct Link' button and post the link here. It should give a more accurate result of your broadband speed than what you get from your ISP.

What kind of things are you all doing that brings the network down to a crawl? Unless you are all streaming videos from Youtube, or you're using dial-up, you shouldn't get to the stage where the internet is unusable.
