If your system is Service pack installed (to be sure, click on the "system properties button in explorer window ....

This button ... it will give you the required info )

So, the info is very important.

Thanks for the appreciation, my friend :)

Waiting for the response from Noztra ! If his system is not SP1, it will not work, and will need different fix.
