Now all you have to do is get another and put them together in RAID 0! Imagine what that would be like... :D

Not sure what they use, except that they are Dell. You know, they may do just that, reformat the Hdd, although the upgrades could be time consuming, unles they some arraingment to have the updates put on disk. Had an offer form the County to work on those things, but said I wasn't coming out of retirement. I like having every day as Saturday. : )

They probably use disk images, make sure those have the latest windows updates, and deploy them to the machines when necessary.

Yeah, forgot about that possibilty. Would make the job a lot easier and faster. They only have so much time to go through several thousand laptops.

    Really? I just blow at the vents with a balloon pump. (I don't seem to get much dust in my PC though - I have moderate airflow, though the fans are on low, and the PC is in my desk cabinet, near the floor.) I guess that's what you have to deal with when you have an animal shedding near your PC. :D

    I cleaned up PC#2 with the air compressor, havta watch it with that, stripped Amanda TEC CPU cooler down to the fins blew that out with air compressor.
    To clean fans I run then under tap water, then douse them with spray foam bathroom cleaner then rise them under the tap and dry with a blow drier.
    Not recommended for the faint of heart.
