Ah, that's my mistake. I usually do not update a program that's in Beta stage. The only ones I update are the ones listed above the Betas. :) If you look to the right, you'll see a list of options. You can click the Show Beta Versions and it will go read with an X. That way, it will only show updates that are non betas. :) :thumbsup:

I am sorry I was going to check in earlier. I was straight out today. I am still trying to finish all tthe updates. There were a couple I did but it still wanted an update. I will see if I can finish that up sometime tomorrow and post with the progress :). Thank you for checking with me, tomorrow is usually out screen free day. I probably would have forgotten until I got back on Monday.

No need to be sorry :) LIfe comes first, and you are very welcome. I just want to make sure that you're completely happy and the machine is giving you no more issues. No rush at all :) :thumbsup:

Post the log and let me look at it, please. You probably can, but I would just like to see what the object found is to make sure. :)
