I do have more great posts to put up but I have no start bar and no icons on my pc so it can be a little slow to get around (cntrl-alt-del and use file open to get programs started). I'm not sure if it relates to my recent upgrade, fan speed, installing a new AV (AVG8.0) or my kids messing on those online gaming sites! But I have used a boot cd (Ulitmate Boot4WIN) to boot off the CD and be able to check the disk without loading anything on it. I have restored the network which disappeared and checked for virus's, disappointed that I didn't find any, and hope to be able to be back up and posting again. I have some great tips from James and plenty more of my own articles to get up there, so hang in there and stay tuned.
If you have specific queries on the wall styles let me know but I hope to post details of how to do them soon.
(And if anyone has specific hints on restoring a desktop please let me know. My latest take is that my profile is corrupted ut it appears windows normally tells you if that's the case).
