Being nannied by Vista prevents me from doing something stupid. I wait till I handed successfully handed the Vista-Nanny the penguin shaped umbrella and then the party (and desperate cries for help) starts in earnest. Expect frequent visits here....;-)
I guess th "Brilliant Windows Vista" book has something to do with it. I have one along with "Brilliant Office 2007". Both have helped me in a lot of ways except with trouble-shooting. These Forums are "Valuable" for that, along with a host of other things that are too numerous to mention. J.B.
I should add that the relative lack of speed here helps the helpers.
A forum with too great a throughput, say the Helproom, can be difficult to keep pace with. I have spotted things were I may have helped but were on page 3 or 4 of the Helproom and it's not always possible to go through so many earlier threads each time I come to the Forum.
