OK. This is for information purposes only as I don't advise you to run the script from the source listed in post #1 without making a System Image FIRST, just in case of problems or it has a detrimental downside or knock on affect!

[1] Open Notepad.
[2] Copy the batch script into Notepad.
[3] Save the Notepad file as something like Batch_Test.bat [on the desktop] and select Save as type: All Files?
[4] Right-click the Batch_Test.bat on the desktop and select Run as administrator.

I hope this helps!
