    Computer asking me about network type

    Okay, it might be nothing but it weirded me out because the help said "the first time you connect to a network, you should specify what kind of network it is" about my internet connection, and it really shouldn't be the first time. I don't recall being asked about this before so maybe it has something to do with the Windows updates I downloaded the other day. It's asking me if it's a home network, work place or public. I'm in an apartment complex where each apartment is private owned but the broadband is supplied by the company owning the building itself.

    I really should get Spybot again, shouldn't I -_- I swear my computer is possessed.

    "Aye. A particularly odious form of sorcery, by all accounts."
    /.../
    "Yes. And have you heard of 'fangirls'?"
    "They are but a legend! A fearful legend, but a legend nonetheless."

    It'll occasionally glitch and ask again, in my experience. I usually set it to 'work' so I don't have to deal with home groups.

    Yeah, Nulani's right! It's most likely a glitch... I wouldn't be too concerned about viruses or spyware (but then again... it wouldn't hurt to scan anyway! :D) But, it's no biggie... just follow the prompts and reconfigure it. It should go away.

    Alrighty, thanks. After all the crap I've gone through with this comp, I jump if it as much as speeds up the fan for a bit.
