    Thanks for your reply - I wondered if my key being an upgrade had a bearing, hence my query about your key. I'll wait for the windows update version of 8.1

    I understand the $69 boxed version is an upgrade, not a "full' version. If you're starting from scratch you need the System Builder version.

    I have had good results with Microsoft ICE (Image Composite Editor) - it's free, which is a bonus. And it works OK on both Windows 7 and Windows 8 RTM. Doesn't need a lot of overlap.

    This router was supplied by the ISP to permit an upgrade to the plan we are now on - faster, and a higher data limit than the old, but better pricing. Result of competition, no doubt. I understand...

    Re: Lock on resume
