Hi Carl,
What a big excuse that was.
You could have used the restore function and been on with it, but then you
wouldn't have a new computer. :O)

| Hi Bob,
| Hi Pam,
| Or could it be we are just too embarrassed to ask.   I read something on
| another list that if I downloaded and install this small program, it would
| enhance my registry to prevent the attacks from Spyware;  so I did.   Boy
| and it works good;  too good.   I no longer could access my Internet bank
| accounts and other sites.   So I hack the registry and deleted the stuff
| that installed with this stupid program.   That was the end of that
| computer.   I was aware that if I had my Windows xp cd, I could just
| reinstall Windows xp and go on with life.   But I could not find my Windows
| xp disk.   I searched and searched and even invaded my daughter's house and
| searched there;   what a nightmare.   I called my son who lives many miles
| away and accused him of theft.   This past Sunday, my son comes to visit and
| he is in my "study"; my sweatshop;  my computer room and he  is looking at a
| stack of empty boxes of stuff I had purchased over the past few years;
| like cdwriter drives, software, etc.  He pulls out this Windows xp box and
| looks inside and there is my cd diskette.   I felt about 2" high.   darn.
| I still haven fixed the computer that I ruined.   I used the failure to find
| the Windows xp as an excuse to buy a new machine and I'm typing on it now.
| :-)
