just wait, now he'll ask for code to convert it.... that was our ... I think 2nd or 3rd program at the business programming votech I attended, and 1st in Pascal at college. Write a program to convert a number to words (as in a check writing program). In Pascal it was assigned twice, first using if statements, later as a table.
give me codez!! PLEZ!!! (pretty please with sugar and cherries on top?)

Shhhhh.... I am not really here. I am a figment of your imagination.... I am still in my cave so this must be an illusion....
Kids are starting with computers pretty young these days. Perhaps this person is only 3 years old or is a non native English speaker. Or maybe by "word" they meant the 2-byte representation of the number.
And I upgraded my first computer from 256 bytes(!) RAM to 4k And it still works fine.
A while ago he asked me what he should have printed on my business cards. I said 'Wizard'.
I read books which nobody else understand. Then I do something which nobody understands. After that the computer does something which nobody understands. When asked, I say things about the results which nobody understand. But everybody expects miracles from me on a regular basis. Looks to me like the classical definition of a wizard.
Today I started having a problem with my laptop which more or less makes it completely impossible for me to use it. Explorer.exe (and any other programs as well) freezes and won't allow me to close it/them in any way. The titlebars are still responsive, so I can still move the windows around and minimize them, but not close them.
I can't do ANYTHING. I tried opening task manager to see if some cr@p was running, but I couldn't open it! No wait, I could, but it took more than twenty minutes before the window showed up. And nothing suspicious was running, and CPU usage seemed to be normal.
Everything is fine in failsafe mode, so I tried doing a couple of system restores from there, but didn't help at all.
I am completely lost on this one, and I would really like to get this fixed soon, or I will be facing a really long day at school tomorrow (with good ol' paper and pencil, yay...)
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: The problem has been fixed! I ran a test to check for memory errors and that fixed the problem right away! Woohooo!
Thanks to everyone who tried to help, I really appreciate it.
