    When people ask for ROMs on GBAtemp, I get the urge to post this:

    I almost did this just five minutes ago.

    And then I'd get suspended for leading a noob to destroy their computer.

    I just tried this... it said 'a fatal error has occurred, please insert the windows backup disc'. So I did that, it completed and now I'm done. Only I can't figure out how tot fit the disc into my DS? :unsure: Could someone show me how? Maybe my DS is faulty and has the wrong size slot?

    I showed Alessa and Chell this thread and at the same time they both said "What's a ROM on GBAtemp?"

    Honestly, the "delete system32" joke is getting old.
    We need something new, like deleting "aecache.dll" to prevent lag.

    If you end explorer.exe, you will not be able to open "My Computer" to delete it. So your instructions would do nothing harmful to their computer.

    I know it's getting old. That's part of the joke.

    If you end explorer.exe, you will be able to open "My Computer" through the browse function in the task manager, which is still able to be opened even when explorer.exe isn't running

    Which will start explorer.exe again, making it impossible to delete it as advised.

    Actually, no. I've had a fatal error with explorer.exe once and it never opened back up, even after I was using task manager.

    It didn't help that I had a virus that disabled explorer.exe, however.

    Opening "My Computer" WILL restart explorer.exe. You CANNOT open "My Computer" without having explorer.exe running.

    You CAN browse My Computer, which is what I meant.

    TO VIEW MY COMPUTER EXPLORER.EXE NEEDS TO BE RUNNING.
    IF YOU STOPPED THE PROCESS, RUNNING C:\ IN THE TASK MANAGER WILL OPEN EXPLORER AGAIN

    THIS WINDOW? YEAH THAT'S EXPLORER.

    WHAT THE SHIT HALF OF MY MESSAGE DISAPPEARED.

    I meant to say "You CAN view My Computer, but it has to be through the browse function in the task manager, which is what I meant."
