Well... well done!

Problem was that every time I let my wife use the laptop she'd end up on
one of the 'recovery' options. Of course that means that I'd have to
drag my fat butt away from my workstation and go to some other room and
find out what the problem is. Then, to top it off, I'd need to explain
why she ended up where she did. Don't get me wrong, she's smart as a
whip, but the "explaining" part never ends in a good way...
(Yes she also has an Ubuntu account on the laptop, but needs to use Win7
for some of her work)

So, your solution will certainly help keep the peace around my house for
awhile :-) Thanks again.
