The advice you give below doesn't seem to work for me.When I Click Start,
All Programs, Accessories, right-click Command Prompt and select "Run as
administrator the root directory is still in c:\Users\Wilma. Should I change
directory to cd:\ first, then type the commands you set out below? I have
been trying all sors of things to replace my sidebar.This sems to be the
closest I' getting.
Look forard to any advice you can give me.
