    Hassan Eeman: I have moved your posts to their own thread. That`s because it`s not the done thing to hijack someone elses thread. Especially, when it`s a completely different problem.

    Regards Howard :)

    You`d be better off starting a new thread for this in our Windows OS forum.

    You`re really not having the best of starts on Techspot.

    First you hijack someone elses thread. Then, you proceed to make umpteen posts one after another, despite my merging several of your posts and giving the reason as "POSTS MERGED: PLEASE USE THE EDIT BUTTON, RATHER THAN MAKING A NEW POST WHEN THERE ARE NO OTHER REPLIES INBETWEEN, THANKS.".

    I then, move your posts to their own thread in the proper forum and you decide to ask a question that has nothing to do with your thread.

    May I suggest you get acquainted with our forum rules. Read this thread SNGX1275`s A guide to making a good post/thread.


    Regards Howard :)
