    Hi - just a quick query. I need to get hold of a cheap, legal version of Windows 2000 to do a clean install on my kids computer that's lost the plot(currently running Windows ME) . Any ideas where I can get one ?

    Cheers - Satchmo.

    to be honest You'd be better off going for XP, it's not really any more demanding on the HW side of things, and is a much nicer OS.

    Your best (cheapest) bet to get a legal copy, is to go for one of the OEM versions of XP Home SP2, you'll just need to buy something like a mouse, some memory etc along with it.. I'd go for some extra memory at the same time, as you'll probably need it anyway...or it can just go in your PC ;)

    check out somewhere like komplett.co.uk they are usually fairly cheap.. about £55 for XP I think... :)

    Also try ebay, you might want to pick up a brand new unregistered version, so you can install windows updates...
