    Dunno, Blaze.  I usually say 'please' instead of demanding info, but, hey, that's me.  :)

    MRBLAZE..I offer not an answer...but hopefully a means to an answer...
    "The Allnode is an IBM proprietary multistage switch that uses four 8  8 crossbar blocks to create a 16  16 switch [9]."

    "ALLNODE switch, which is a multi-stage switch designed for clustered computing. Developed by IBM, this switch has the capability of supporting IP-level communication and also has a low-latency mode with a proprietary API. "

    This is a bit (A bit?) technical for me.....but I can ask....did one of the "few things" you installed yesterday happen to include some DVD software, perhaps DVDExpress?
    It uses "allnode.dll" ......something to do with the region coding on DVDs.
