Windows 7 Home Premium

Thanks for everyone's help. It looks to be under control now. This forum is a great example of the internet at work. I am certainly gonna spread the word.

And, by the way, I beleieve Microsoft really did it right this time with Windows 7. What a huge improvement over Vista.
