It didn't work either
. Well I am not that desparate, I will reinstall the OS in the next one or two weeks anyway, and hopefully the last time for a longer time, after I check out a few more applications. However, if you have some more ideas, I would be happy to try. BTW, the help a few weeks ago with the disappearing system folders (My Documents, etc.) worked perfectly!
Applications I would like to check before the 'final' install: BitDefender 2011 - they say it can take DOS commands at the beginning and at the end (like Acronis?). This is important because right now, with the BD AV 2010, I use a workaround to wake the computer up, keep it from going to sleep, and at the end of the scan, I send it to sleep. I use a BAT file to check the BD log file folders: and when it writes the log file, I know I can send the computer to sleep. (When I start the PC in the morning, then I trigger a scheduled task that resets the power scheme to my default scheme (with a powercfg /a command). I was hoping to find an Event ID for this application but I couldn't. I also plan to check out Nero BurnExpress. This latter hopefully will not want to take over my whole computer like the usual Nero bloatware. (I use Nero 8 Micro right now.) If you have any advice on these two applications, I would greatly appreciate.
Thank you very much for your help,
