there is a crack to take care of the "XX days to register" out there somewhere.

p2p means peer to peer, like morpheus, napster, audio galaxy, grokster, winmx, and a variety of other programs. it allows you to download from another person.

I turn them off individually. I don't know of a way to turn them off in general.

Do both the XP Pro and XP Home versions require registering, or is it just the XP Home version?

And what happens if you are supposed to register, but don't? You just have to mess with the pop ups? And there is a program that takes care of the pop ups?
