You've got a task on your hand Linux is hard to work with from what I've been told. If you can do, I hope you enjoy it.

Thanks for the comment. Read building htpc with Linux.. you need to get graphic cards from nvidia to offer hardware decoding possibilities for hd media.

I've just been trying to fix my computer. I had adware and maleware and maybe even spy ware on it and I can't seem to find what is still wrong with it. When I'm on myLot or another page if I'm on there it stops int he middle of the page and says its not responding but then it will lose the connection and say i wasnt on there to begin with
