Thank you. I run virus scans, sysyems checks a;; the good stuff all the time. I use not only the Windows programs but McAfee also. Even my son in law, who is a IT guy that travels all over the world for his company could not even access my wifi in my house. So, just for fun, how do I get bad clusters on a 6 month old laptop? Yes, I finally got the backup done. The stupid fan is noisy and I have to send it in. Sometimes I just want to shoot these dang computers!
