But I LIKE Vista! Hated it at first, but now it's working well. And I never
seem to be able to find what I want in News Groups, but OK, I'll try again.
Incidentally, I tried (in XP which I'm using at the moment) to open the link
in the automated email to access this reply, and although IE opens, it won't
access the page. This has been happening recently. Now that's in XP!
Maybe it won't happen if I access through News Groups??
