Hi Jim. Thanks for the swift reply. I thought that was the case but according to Microsoft this issue was resolved, stated here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/818733.
Is this not the case?
Had multiple problems with Vista over the years so reinstalled XP forgetting how antiquated it is.
Think I'm going to get windows 7 (take it that works!?), Nero and Roxio just don't appeal to me. Thanks again.
