Glad I could help, Hermitt. I hope the tutorial wasn't too confusing (that's the very first time I've written a tutorial).

HiHiHi and WelcomeWelcomeWelcome VicVicVic,

Excellent tutorial, and not confusing at all.
Exactly the info needed without any distracting comments. Perfect!

Congratulations on solving your problem, and thanks for sharing it with everyone!
You are a role model for new members, and I mean that. Not a joke.

So I'll gladly tip your scale and add to your reputation like some of my peers already have.

Your tutorial was not confusing in the least to me, it's strait forward and well done, good work. Also thanks again for the tip, I believe it's one I'll be using as long as Win7 supports it.
