    Looking at what was listed under Administrative Tools, I saw something called "Data Sources." Never noticing this before I opened it and saw PerfMon which was disabled. I have no idea what this is and the choice to disable was not made by me. I would like a plain description of Data Sources and an answer to the following questions:

    the meaning of PerMon.

    should it be disabled or disabled?

    what would happen if it was enabled?

    I have no intention of changing how it's set now, unless it would help in some area, and someone here advises me to make the change.

    Thanks,

    Gloria

    Hi Gloria,

    ODBC Data Sources let programmers connect their programs to a database. It's not something that you'll have to deal with yourself, so I would leave all settings the way they are. The PerfMon setting is a rather technical one; the default is Disable, and that's OK.

    I read the explainations provided on the page and realized that this one was way over my head.

    Thanks Hans for the reply, I won't touch anything in there.
