Just sat here with a blinding headache, two chocolate biscuits and a cup of coffee and thinking of going to bed!
Thanks for the link, I've read most of it before, and with the usual good intentions, downloaded the Kerio firewall and AVGAS, with every intention of replacing windows firewall and e-Trust anti virus, which though it's now expired, continues to work, and download latest updates!
So yes, the time has come to get protected, I am running McAfee SiteAdvisor in IE7, SpywareBlaster in the background.
Since updating Spybot yesterday, I'm now running version 184.108.40.206 which includes "Teatimer" not quite sure about teatimer yet, but it's not making its presence felt too much!
Also on demand, I've got AdAware, AVG AntiSpyware, and a-Squared!
I'm wondering about "Windows Defender", but don't know if it would conflict with others, and if it is a resource hog!
so more digging to be done there!
Main priority at present is replacing e-Trust, and windows firewall!!
One problem that has arisen since my cleaning at a-Squared, is that my "Normal.dot" template seems to be corrupted.
I have two bitmap signatures stored as autotext entries, and they were acessible via "Insert">Auto Text>Normal.
Now, there are no sub menu entries under "Auto Text", not even the ones that should be placed there by Word!!
Had the same problem once back in August 2006, when http://www.officekb.com
gave me the solution, but they've deleted the posting! It told me how to seek out all instances of the template, and then rename them all oldNormal.dot - windows then creates a new one!
I seem to remember using "Run" to find the templates, rather than "Search", but I can't be sure.
I've posted again in the "officekb" forum, and hope someone posts back!
Off to bed now, I'm whacked! six-h
