    Alt-Prt Scrn does not seem to work at all. At least if it is saving the screen somewhere I sure don't know where it is.

    How Do You Grab a Window Screen Shot?

    What I mean by this is suppose you have a window open and you want a "picture" type record of it.
    I know there must be a way to do this, but I can't figure it out.
    Any help greatly appreciated.

    I guess after making a rescue cd it would be a good idea to test it out by re-booting from the DVD drive and see what happens!

    How to make a rescue CD?

    Can you make a rescue cd directly from Windows, or would you boot to the original Windows install cd?
    Would you need to use something like Macrium to make a rescue cd?
