    Yeppers .... I go through the system fairly regularly:). He knows about all of the risks as well and so far has been carefull enough not to cause any major problems. Not only does he have a pretty good idea as to what would happen to him if he does something real nasty to the system but I think he'd prolly miss it as much as I would. We lasted two years with out reinstalling M.E. then went to XP so I guess we are doing alright.

    Gotta talk to him about the short movies in c:/mymusic/hidden files/movies ... then again maybe not ... some of em are not too bad:devil win:

    I didn't explain that one right. He actually has the movies in a hidden file within the "my music" folder. In order to see the file at all I have to go into "my music" then -->tools -->folder options--->view--->show hidden files and folders. Him did a good job! I give him full marks for creativity but I have no idea why he thought he could outsmart the old man....:laugh:

    In my younger years (not that I am old and wise, yet) I never had this problem as my parents have only just became computer literate.
