[access-uk] Re: Transferring files to new computer

Hi Andy,

No, I haven't heard the tutorial you mention.  I used another from the BCT 
list, I think.  (I have it somewhere . . ..)

I have NOD32 for both computers separately as the laptop leaves home on 
occasions, so that presented no problem.

Actually, the desktop is plugged into the router and the laptop accesses 
wirelessly so not plugged in anywhere.  (This has created a few difficulties 
and loss of wireless on occasions which, as yet, I haven't fully rectified, 
but most of the time it's fine.)

Hope this helps a bit, at least to tell you that someone else had problems. 
I don't think I am savvy enough to help you through many of them, though 
many on the list are well able.

Hope you get sorted soon.  Keep us posted.
