Hope this helps,
Splendid. I actually wondered if you'd make one. Should have known you were already at it.

Gradually half of my typing is being replaced by tute links, such a timesaver and adding vital screenshots.

Thank you Brink.

You're welcome Greg, and thank you Bill.

Oh yes, anything that can be helpful I'll try and make a tutorial on to help make it easier.

Just wanted to say thanks for helping me locate wininit entry in what is, to a non computer person, a very crowded Event Viewer screen.

Really appreciate it as I was able to view the if I could only understand the log

Actually, it looked kosher to me..didn't see any "Danger Will Robinson" dialogue.

Thanks again,
