...and they're about to close around his redneck throat....
In my intimate association with computers and my ability to communicate with them, his tells me it would really fuckin' appreciate that.
yrag ... if anything ever goes wrong with my laptop you can be sure of one thing. I'll put it in your very capable hands then make sure my insurance is paid up. Holy smokes.
Thanks to Yrag, and my quick wittedness, it is a done deal. Thanks Dic......er, Ducky!!!
So, what was the fix? I have been following this because my system restore is borked as well.
Well, that's at least half true.
Now it's working, have you taken a backup?
Glad to hear it RnD. Kudos to yrag.
Use Acronis True Image 2011 to backup my system and turn off System Restore.
I use W7 Backup for full daily Backups to a internal HD. I also use Macrium Reflect (which is free) for Weekly full backups to an entirely different HD than the one I use for my W7 backup
It has worked for me. But I will not disagree with yrag. By the time I got half through readinf his comments tears were running down my face and I couldn't see the screen anymore!
Oh.. and here I was thinking it because they thought they were made from potatoes.
Which would explain the potato famine. I see now.
