Thanks for the link. If I have a couple of days to mess around with th
registry I will try that.

How could MS meddle with an OS so thoroughly. I mean, I suppose ther
are some nice things to it behind the scenes, though I thought XP wa
just fine as it was (and all my programs and hardware worked). But o
the surface, all the Vista glamor is unncessary. I prefer a GUI tha
works.

Sorry to crab at you, I appreciate the time you spent getting me tha
link. Just venting about MS
