Should I decline prompts for windows updates and the like?
And can I transfer files between PC and VM?

I guess now's a good time to try.
Kind of a shame about the internet thing, I'd kind of like to share my stuff and download mods. If I'm lucky I might be able to transfer spore from VM to PC, but something tells me I shouldn't hold my breath.
Oh yeah It might be a good idea to de-authorise my current computer, I'd assume the de-auth tool is not available until the Spore website finishes maintenence.
(The situation with the Spore website and servers does concern me a bit, I have seen websites go into "maintenence" then never open again)
I noticed that Vmplayer/Shorthorn's functioning slows down a great deal after it's been left inactive for a long time and doesn't seem to regain speed when I try to use it again, I was trying to download the 1.5.1 patch and the issue seemed to be interfering. I'm downloading the patch normally but this makes things a little more awkward.

Vmware tools were installed.
I guess If it won't play properly I could download another Iso, but I might have to find that de-auth tool.

Anyway Spore seems to be working reasonably now, though I must say I'm a bit sick of the thing after all the fussing :B. I'll get over it.
