Personally, I haven't had any problems. But I have heard from some people that 811493 slows your computer, and 329170 causes it to take forever to shut down. I have never had any problems with either one, on several different computers. Maybe I've just been lucky. :smile:

My Daddy used to tell me:
<b>It's better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you're stupid,
then it is to open your mouth and prove it.</b>
I never was good at taking advice!

Unfourtunately, this is old news. And Microsoft knows about it. According to Microsoft: May or may not be you problem.

Thank you very much for that!

Give a lazy man an easy job and he'll find an easier way of doing it.
