Just a general note on pc problems I'd been living with a pc that seemed to be stuck on 100% disk usage most of time for ages. I googled it and tried the suggestions on a couple of sites about altering this and that but nothing seemed to work. The other day out of desperation, I trawled through task scheduler and and my start up folders and just chucked a bunch of stuff out. I could not believe the difference it made, it's been like having a new pc To view the the 2 startup folders, hold down the windows key and press the "R" key to open the Run box, then type shell:common startup for one and shell:startup for the other. To view what's in your task scheduler , hold down the windows key and press the "R" key to open the Run box, then type taskschd.msc If your situation is anything like mine there'll be a load of stuff that you don't need. For example I don't need my printer software doing some task every few minutes, forever.
