    Ain't gonna happen, Woody. Business runs on Windows platforms, and will for a long time. The notion that Linux will replace Windows in the business world is preposterous. And expecting Fortune 500...

    I'll try that. It's been a while since I worked in Access. Meantime, I found another way to do it, although I like yours better.

    I agree that McAfee Internet Security 2012 is nothing special, and I'm no fan of Norton Internet Security, either. In my experience, they're both bloated resource hogs, and I go out of my way to...

    It's easier than that, Frank. You have the 64 bit version of Windows 7. That means you can run more than 3GB of memory. That's the main difference you'd notice. More memory, faster machine. Is good....

    I'll try putting his old email away. He's got about 2000 messages in his inbox. I'll also try turning off indexing to see if that makes a difference.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'll post back.
