I apologize for the attachment Phil, I browsed then click on the JPEG file but forgot to click the Attach This File icon, I might as well apologize for past and I'm sure future sloppiness, I have a family medical situation so my mind is even more scattered than usual but believe that the "screen.jpg" file is now attached.
Now on to our Puppy friend, the reason that I did not attempt to reboot the Desktop so that Puppy Linux would boot yesterday is that the mini-mouse must have had a good hair day yesterday and was "moving" every time I tried to do something with my Desktop which was very important because I had my tax returns on the computer and needed to finish them up and print them (which I did) before it became temperamental again or worse, crashed and I would lose the latest iteration, so I just left it alone.
When I went to the Desktop this morning, the mini-mouse was frozen and started the system with Puppy, it took considerable longer to load that Windows but it did load and I got a Personalize Screen where I was able to type (use the KB) but good old mini-mouse was not impressed with Puppy and treated it the same was as it did Windows, it failed to move (it was frozen). I tried rebooting Puppy and the exact same thinghappened si took the SC out of the drive and rebooted "normally" with Windows and it took me 3 reboots before it would unfreeze and that's where I am.
So to net things out, Puppy has been installed but the mouse still is frozen so my (uneducated) guess is that whatever is going, I have noticed happening with the mouse (the large one doesn't work, only the mini-mouse works and it not all the time) and my Logitech Solar Wireless KB doesn't work but the wired HP KB that came with the system works) and I assume the Creating a Restore Point is completely unrelated to the "freeze" problem.
Thank you again for ALL your help Phil, I feel like you are acting as my personal computer Geek and true appreciate all the time and effort you have and hopefully will continue to provide to me.
P.S.- I probably will be on and off the computer today, very sporadically tomorrow, probably not at all on Tuesday and won't know about Wednesday until Tuesday
