Thanks for reopening this Val. I was in the middle of typing a reply when it was closed.
Just a little FYI for you flecker. Normally I would have stuck with you yesterday evening when I got home from work, but I was not feeling well. In spite of how bad I was feeling, one of the posts I made it a point to reply to was yours. I made sure I replied to yours before I went offline because of this last post you made:
Would it be easier if I just did a re-install? I can't access pirate4x4.com and I need info off it to complete a project I am working on... all these constant pop-up's are getting to the point that I am considering just scrapping the whole harddrive and staring over
I didn't want you to go off and reformat when it is not necessary to do so. After about 45 minutes online answering a few posts, I decided it was in my best interest to go lay down because I was feeling worse all the time. I stayed in bed all evening.
I am one of the volunteers here that usually posts more on the weekend. You would have had a response from me this AM whether I felt better or not simply because I don't like to leave people hanging as long as I did last night, but I did what I had to do for myself. I would have stuck with you throughout this weekend to resolve your problems to the best of my ability.
You were third in line to get a reply from me this morning. I just read your last reply to your thread before seeing this topic. I would have been posting a reply to you right now, on my own free time
, to help finish fixing your computer. Instead, I am having to spend some of the time that I could be using to finish helping others to reply to this.
From what I can tell, we were not far from getting your machine straightened out. I don't see how you can backup your data, reformat and reinstall all your apps in less time than it would have taken to finish what we started even with the delay. I will be glad to finish this with you if you have not reformated already, but that is your choice.
Anyway, I apologize for the delay. It was just one of those evenings when I just had to take some time for myself. I can assure you that your impression of the forum and the excellent staff here is dead wrong.
Have a wonderful day!
Edit: Another FYI: I can't get to the pirate4x4 site either ....http://www.pirate4x4.com/http://www.pirate4x4.com/welcome1.php
It's the site, not you.
