Hi srcomsec,



is there a way other than the control panel -- programs-- turn on and off method.

I'm sure there is though it would only be a shortcut to the same destination which would result in failure as well.

Is this the same Vista computer as you posted a topic for found here?

If so, it sounds as if you have major registry corruption and the only possible cure is to either find someone with a Vista installation disc to perform a repair install or restore the computer back to factory condition.

Possibility that another member knows something that I don't, so please stay tuned....
