I know it's no big deal but until I found this site I used to revert to the recovery disc because I didn't know any better then I bought a new PC with XPHome just over 12months ago found this site and slowly very slowly things are sticking in my mind and I feel like I'm learning. Many thanks to everyone and All the very best for Christmas and the New Year
This goes to everyone on this forum...Thank you for all your help over the years. this has been the best find on the net. my house mate was astonished when he saw how quickly i got responses on this forum and that the service was free (and accurate!). best thing since sliced bread :-) thank you all, and i hope that i am able to contribute as effectively one day!
