Pay attention to the warning mentioned in Amazon..

"Dell not very helpful" - I have never owned a Dell computer and that is why - I have heard too many bad reports from disappointed owners. It is all about "Sales" these days, that's where the money comes from.

Just had to Google my Monitor Model number (as provided by SIW) to find whether I had "1 CCFL"

Popped up a load of other suppliers and prices too.
I bought mine from Amazon a few months ago.

Is that download safe as most of my security programmes and warning against downloading it

If you are referring to SIW fro CNet then yes it is safe.

  robin_x 21:07 20 Mar 2011 is a very safe download site. No probs here running Avira.

Try from filehippo or somewhere else if worried.
Probably a false positive.
