Love all the encouragement, folks!
But my PC is now is the "computer hospital" so to speak. I thinks microsoft did something to my registry. I had to wipe the whole thing out and do a complete install (which isn't such a bad thing I might add).
Got some great programs that the tech's are installing and they are going to put it back the way I had it BEFORE it crashed the last time. If it works, I'm going to be pretty happy.
Should know today sometime. I'll keep you all posted. Meanwhile, I have been using the time wisely. Have done a lot of cleaning, laundry and reading which I am enjoying.
And yes, Bob..I have your number posted on the wall near my computer desk for emergencies.
