Well people, I don't know squat about computers, but one thing is for sure. I may not know you, or owe you anything, but if you have a file on your desktop labled TOOLBOX like I do, My advice would be to put a copy of this tool in it. It works.

THANKS, ROGER. You are the best so far. TOOLBOX is a winner also, but you are tops. We are sorry that we cannot afford to evaluate programs with $$$ costs since we are all volunteers. We appreciate what youngsters like you are doing to help consumers.
