So you're saying that Windows will partially cripple itself if left
to its own devices for a few days, but requires operator intervention
to complete the job of thoroughly mucking itself?

- kevin ( who can't leave Windows up for more than two or three days
without [memory leak?] slowdowns and cognitive decline of Windows 7...
which is better than Win XP, and wa-a-a-ay better than earlier
Win versions... but still - my Mac laptop and Linux boxes might
get cranky and irritable after a few _months_ of continuous uptime, or not)
