    Windows XP: what in the world is it downloading!?

    For 5hrs and it's only 48% done! So says the little yellow shield looking thing on the pop-up text. Double clicking on it does nothing. This is a high speed connection! 10mb usually only takes a few min at most, so it should have d/l 1gb by now!! It's slowed a P4 2.6ghz to a crawl as well.

    How does a filter remove sludge?

    In reference to Maxlife oil filter. It says it removes more sludge than other filters.
