That is the best news ever. We will continue to monitor.
I think this is the longest post that I have been involved in.

The resolution was due to everyones diligence.

Just an update.

Loading all my programs went well except for Norton Systemworks. My 2004 diskette just wouldn't load up, but Norton's (Symantec's?) tech assistance was great and she decided, after no success in reloading my CD, to just download and load up the 2009 version.

I have some questions:

1. There are a number of old programs in my Program Files that I no longer need or want. However, with the change in Operating System, they are no longer in the list of programs in the Control Panel's - Add or Remove Window. Therefore, how do I delete/remove them? do I simply delete the folder in which they reside?

2. How do I remove the old OS, do I delete the WINDOWS folder? If so, do I then change the name of the folder in which the new OS is located from WINDOW2 to WINDOWS?

Thanks again.

Jim
