I posted a couple pics from where I needed to apply it. Once I knew to look for it, it was really fairly simple.

Good, I can bring my hardware to you then. I avoid it whenever possible. I am a Win7 man.

Naw, I feel right at home with the video tutorial I found where the guy gets frustrated and starts ranting while tearing the parts out.

Thank you. The paste I got was much much more fluid and I used it sparingly. I didn't have a lot of faith in that "instructor's" teachings
