Just thought I would post this. For some reason I happened to remember that our local phone company, which provides our wireless service, has a premium service for computer problems. I called the 800 number and the service is only 14.99 a month with a 12 month contract. They are available 24/7 and will cover up to 3 computers....I agreeded, and with in a few minutes they were remotely operating my computer. I got off the phone and in about 10 minutes I heard a ding from the 'puter and read the message that I was all taken care of. Sweet. It would have cost me 49.00 for the local guy just to look at it, and would take him at least 2 days to get around to looking at it.... I'm not exactly sure what the main problem was and what they did, but I am going to call them tmrw. Just thought I would post this and once again thank everyone for thier help and suggestions.
