Not a lot of instructions with it ;-)

No there isn't much in the way of instructions, and I'm not at all confident it will do the job. The link downloads a registry patch in the form of a reg file. Double clicking a reg file inserts the patch into the registry.

Hi Thanks dont really like using reg editors etc, usually do more harm than good, i will try sys restore and scan for virus.
