Thanks. That's the key for me -- if the official list is all-inclusive, then I should be fine with HP.

Someone else mentioned the group policy editor. I've never figured out what to do with it and I'm normally the only user of my computer, so I probably don't need it. I'm a programmer, but I'm programming for other machines, not my own.

Thanks for all the replies!

Glad to be of help. I think that you have made the right decision.
