Thanks for the reply,
I have had other incompatabilities with Vista in the 1 week since i bought my wife her laptop. I had promised her it could do everything the old PC could but it can't because some of the applications she uses dont work eg Kodak easyshare easy web upload doesnt seem to work with vista. It also seems quite slow running Vista, i thought with the dual core processor it should make the OS run quite quick but i guess Vista is a big resource hog.
SO..I am giving up and reinstalling XP on the laptop. Its a shame as i liked some of the Vista features.
Good luck with resolving this issue.
