Alright, sir! Done and done. Re-installed without the LAN driver. =)
Thanks again. I've seen more blue screens and system hangs in the last week than I have in my entire life -- Windows 3.1 to present. Hopefully this solves it, but, just in case, I'm going to leave Verifier on this time, lol.
All the best to you, and a Happy New Year, for sure!
