  • One of the 1st rules of etiquette for posting in online forums is you ensure you post in a forum that is relative to your situation.

    You state you are running Vista, so posting in a Windows XP forum is not acceptable.

    The Windows Vista forums are found @ http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/home?category=windowsvistaitpro
