Just a thought, no guarantees but creating the file certainly wont hurt anything and can be removed if not successful.

Thanks for the reply I'll give it a try.

When I had this computer custom made I requested a modem, not windows 
garbage. None of what I wanted is in the computer. Except I ended up 
with a 500 gig hard drive instead of the 250 that I ordered. The place 
was Computer Direct on Dundas between Tomken road and Dixie, Mississauga 
Ontario. I would warn any one from buying a custom system from them. As 
soon as they get your money you don't exist any more.
