wen S*** goes wrong it really goes wrong!!! Booted the O'l PC, after 2 days of messing with VISTA beta 2, and dual booting, about 4hrs spent on a LAN to work, only to have my primary XP PC say: AUTO CHK PROGRAM NOT FOUND-SKIPPING AUTO CHECK. well if it would have just "skipped" it,,,, So, to keep it short, I found this here web site, and the answer to my troubles. PTedit. Thanks for the info. of course PT wouldnt run right, and when I tried to join here my PW wouldn't work,,,,,, THEN! all the sudden-SH**, it all came togeather! wen its broke its broke, but wen it all comes togeather, what can I tell ya, if ya dont kno the feeling you will never know it. I think I might run out and play the lottery! Now if only i could find "bbrass10" to ask what number to play. That is who had the correct info. Thanks bbrass10. saved me from reformatting !!! B PS: nice site, think i'll stick around for awhile if its OK?
