Thanks for the quick response folks.
Ron K - Yeah I've tried that but Windows can't find any software to read the
mig file - locally or via the net.
Richard - When I re-installed XP I did a full Windows update to ensure I was
protected with the latest Security fixes etc - Is this what you mean?
I think Jon is right and that I'll have to Reinstall Vista - reload my files
off the DVDs, copy them manually onto new DVDs and then reinstall XP - Phew
what a pain in the backside - You would have thought there was an easier way
Oh well that's what I get for getting a sneak preview of Vista early!!!!
