Hello howard64 & gengiscant

I have tried to get it from both of the sites you suggest but the download is said to take sveral days!! Life is too short!

If you're on a broadband connection it takes a few minutes to download. Can take a few hours to install, but will get there in the end!

My broadband is OK - speed 4.8

What now?

I would download and save it - not run. Then install in safe mode as some a/v programmes can cause difficulties. There were loads of threads on this about 18 monts ago!Make a restore point first.

Hello All
In spite of much effort I could not download it from MS but Major Geeks did in 8 min.!!

john bunyan, I note your advice. Thanks.
