    Re: Add/Remove Programs blank? / Fixed !! <g>

    <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23>...I'm sooo glad I was of some help. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you don't have anymore problems with ME. I've had my few problems with ME, but nothing that a 'worm', etc. caused such a nightmare.
    I, also, find ME to be just the right OS for my uses. <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Re: Add/Remove Programs blank? / Fixed !!

    Got it Joe, but what a pain - had to register to the site, and answer a bunch of questions - that link is stored well into my 'unused links'catagory in my favorites <g>..
    Thanks for the file, it may come in handy - but I'd have to be semi convinced on buying a new scanner just in case.

    Hi Lonnie,
    Glad is somewhat of an understatement <g>. I know that eventually we all will have to upgrade to XP or beyond, just so hard to justify it when what we have now works so well (mostly). <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>
    I find that mostly it's 'operator insecurity' that causes most of these problems - like downloading some freeware and not have restore points or backups in place. <img src=/S/bouncenburn.gif border=0 alt=bouncenburn width=31 height=31>
    <sigh> live and learn.

    <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15> A monitor that went fubar - which, in turn, caused entire PC to go fubar...and also some M$ Updates that didn't want to play nicely with ME! <img src=/S/rant.gif border=0 alt=rant width=66 height=37> .
    I'm due for a reformat/clean install soon...just have to schedule a time that I'm not working that day...and doing a burn of certain program data (i.e. MailWasherPro)...then I will be good for another year or so. 20 GB HDD with 18GB available - no pix or music or Office-type software on this machine (no need for it)
    This 'baby' is tweaked to my standards (30 seconds from time I push the 'on button' to the desktop, etc. etc. ) and I don't have problems with IE either <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>! Plus, being on cable <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    <img src=/S/ranton.gif border=0 alt=ranton width=66 height=37> That, and how about a system that has August 2003 for a windows directory date, 2 - 120 gig hard drives, lots of video files, and still working smoothly. While my system does take longer to boot up (approx 45 seconds), she (or he) still does things the way I want, when I want, and how I want. <img src=/S/rantoff.gif border=0 alt=rantoff width=66 height=37>
    Guess we are some of the lucky ones <snicker>.
    My only downfall was installing 'junk' and unstalling it. Tends to fill the registry.

    Have a great Spring.

    You have a great Spring also.
    I use the jv16PowerTools to clean my Registry...have that app? I use an older version of that wonderful program...and has never failed me yet! <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>. *just downloaded the CasinoToGo trial software from Pogo.com...played 1 hr., uninstalled it...used jv16PTools...my 'baby' is clean again* <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    I have the real old one...v1.0.0.124 <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>...didn't like the last free one...too complicated for me! Sometimes the oldest 'easy-to-use' is better, especially for somebody like me! <img src=/S/granny.gif border=0 alt=granny width=20 height=20>
    Yes!!!! Spring is finally here...although the local weatherman is predicting some <img src=/S/snow.gif border=0 alt=snow width=32 height=32> for this weekend here <img src=/S/frown.gif border=0 alt=frown width=15 height=15>.
