I already tried that. They haven't issued any updates to make it compatible with their later OSs, probably in an attempt to prompt users to buy their latest version. That strategy didn't work with me.

Hi Noel, I forgot to mention that I already had that turned off.

Duzzy, that looks like what I want. I've set it to not allow any drivers or information to be installed.

Thanks to all.

I beg to differ over your definitions. An Eprom does not need an external power source to retain it's data. It has a quartz window that allows it to be erased by UV light and normally has this...

Hi Dave,

No, no access problems after deleting it. I've checked a few other files and they all have it so it looks like you've nailed it.

Far too many files to change so I'll just leave alone...

Hi Dave,

That's an interesting question. When I upgraded from XP I copied all my user files to an external drive then copied them back onto the new system. Maybe that could be the explanation? If...

Can taskbar popup delay be changed?

When hovering over icons in the taskbar there is a delay before the appearance of the popup with the details. This seems to be a new feature. Is there any way to reduce this delay?

Ah well, since it looks like there is going to be no resolution to this problem I think I'll probably scrap Office 2000 and use Open Office instead. I've tried it and it seems to work pretty well.
