Do I really have to buy additional software to play DVDs on my PC?

Forgive me if I should know this already. but do I really have to buy additional software to play DVDs on my PC? I mean, I bought this combo (CD-RW/DVD) drive so I could burn CDs and play DVDs, but Win XP has no native DVD codec. So is InterVideo's WinDVD or PowerDVD the only options? And does this all come back to the controversy over DeCSS?

Visio Help

VisioFilter. Okay. This should be terribly simple. I am quite sure there is an add-on or a macro that I can throw into Visio that will allow me to right-click on a page/tab in a Visio document and duplicate that page and the contents therein. Why this isn't a native application function, I have no idea. Any suggestions or sources?

How do I clean my desktop without admin access?

Let's say that someone was leaving their job. They're leaving amicably and of their own volition. They wish no ill will on their soon-to-be former employer, but they would like to leave their workstation as clean as the day they first arrived. We should note here that this person does not have Admin access to this machine, so installable options (like Window Washer) are probably out of the question. Any suggestions?

Great CPU, or the greatest cpu?

AMD or Intel? I'm calling on the collective to abandon corporate loyalties and reveal unto me a true assessment. Even the mighty Tom has no clear answer. For the home-user who wants to avoid obsolescence for the next 18 months, which of these two companies' processing products offers the best bang for my buck? Or more specifically, for my $180 or less? [MI] [more inside]
