    Thanks for your replies.

    App loading order during boot.

    I'm using a Logitech mouse, and associated Logitech Setpoint software.

    Thank you, Steve. I've been using Windows Live Movie Maker to rotate the .mov files, but it only saves in .wmv format. I'll try your suggestion, to see if it retains the .mov format.
