agrarianmonk, may your crops never fail you, may you have pure water and good fortune always.
Thankyou,thankyou thankyou for all of your help.
I think I may have just 1 small problem with deleting all my restore points. You remember that I have been having a problem with the taskbar in safemode, well, it has been suggested that I go back to an earlier restore point to see if this solves the safe mode taskbar problem.
any suggestions? or do you think its more prudent that I wipe the restore points anyway?
I'll follow your instructions right away.
