Thanks for everyones help. I will follow the links with advice given earlier shortly, I've been busy their and unable to look at this thread. In answer to johnnyrocker's question - this is not a work computer, it is my personal laptop. I'm not sure what could cause conflict because their is very little installed on it. I'm starting to wonder if my laptop hard drive is bust after find a couple more error messages, such as click here while trying to open Works 8. I'm running Windows File Protection (sfc /scannow) to see if that will fix it.
