C:\Documents and Settings Does this make any sense to anyone ?
Downloaded registry mechanic and it found lots of problems but could not fix as said i had to register / pay... dont think so, usually get FREE fix's on here.. Ha ha ha !!
Ran it, found and fixed quite a few probs, then ran it through a couple more times and put a restart in there just to spice things up a little, seems to have all got back to normal now and working fine
