Aha! That is why I cannot see them here - it's a different thread! DOH! Sorry, I am discombobulated.

I had a pullmanery embolism, SWMBO had two heart attacks then a triple bypass operation and her daughter and husby have been staying to help. Between the visiting, homecoming and follow up scans I am unsure whether I am coming or going.

Perhaps this week I'll be able to tackle the older W7 machine with the poorly power supply.

I will return to that thread for the power supply.

Hi Jim - sorry to hear that you and SHMBO have been having health problems.
I wish you both a speedy recovery.
