    Thanks for your reply momok, sorry its taken so long for me to get back to you. Shortly after I made that post, my computer started rebooting its self every time it got to the welcome screen. So I havent been able to get into the computer, let alone fix the other problem. Im going to try repairing the installation and see what that does but I have to wait now till I get a new power supply. We've had a lot of hardware failures around here lately too. I'll let you know how I get on.
