As I was involved in the last thread (sorry, but I truly ran out of
ideas), I am very glad to hear that you sorted that out. If I /may/, very
politely and gently, recommend an operating system that is more
consistent: consider upgrading to GNU/Linux one day in the future. I was a
disappointed Windows user for over a decade. It was excellent in its 3.1,
95 and maybe even 98 days. It has gone nowhere since and scenarios such as
the above are the type of stuff that drove me away.
