Hey Richard, just wanted to drop you a quick note to say sorry for disappearing - I'm just completely swamped with work right now and am finding increasingly less time to come online. I've fallen slightly behind with my work and will have a bit more time when I get back on top of it, so hopefully it won't be like this for long :) The tabs are just getting ridiculous now!
I have a problem with my Windows Vista PC and wonder if you could proffer a solution. it all started once when i was shutting down my PC and it got stuck at the blue "shutting down" screen for over seven hours. I eventually had to force a shutdown by holding down the power button for some seconds. since then, it's been unable to shutdown, cannot install new programs, and sometimes ejects the CD drive without command.
I've seen one of your posts on a similar problem for windows 7.
can you be of any help?
