  1. I've never had the icon pop up on my system tray but I also didn't know about it (despite owning a PC for over 10 years) so it's not a silly question.
  2. I would say yes as my experience of drive imaging software is that to restore the image you need the same size or larger hard drive never smaller. In some cases there are compression routines but I've never tried using them so I'm not sure to be honest.
  3. I don't think that the Police should become entangled in politics personally.
  4. I vote when local elections and general elections are held but I'm not bothering to vote for Police Commissioners, what a waste of time.
  5. Thanks guys all sorted now. I think I could also have done it using MSCONFIG > BOOT
  6. Hello Gandalph. I hope you are right about the Olympics generating revenue for the UK economy as it certainly needs it as we are in a double dip recession.
  7. I have a spare 64 bit PC and I accidentally installed the 32 bit version of Windows 7 on it (although the installation didn't complete due to a read/write error) but have now successfully installed the 64 bit version. The hard drive itself has been wiped of the failed installation but I still have the defunct entry on boot up on the dual boot screen. Does anyone know a safe way of deleting the unwanted entry ? I want to get rid of it because both entries are listed as 'Windows 7' and so it's confusing and if I accidentally select the wrong entry, I get an error message ! Cheers.
  8. Very true about the European countries voting for each other ! Talking of not being able to afford venues whilst in a recession, the Olympics is even more expensive to host.
  9. Not so much a cover up as failing to answer the question posed :lol: Back on topic, I can't stand the Eurovision either and the only time I liked it was ages ago when Abba won it with their excellent Waterloo song.
  10. Nice to see you as well John. By the way, I didn't know that GHOST stood for General Hardware-Oriented System Transfer !
  11. I think you are referring to PowerQuest Drive Image which I used to use before Symantec bought it and, although I use Norton Ghost, I don't rate it as good. On a few occasions, Norton Ghost has failed where as Drive Image never did in all the years I was using it !
  12. http://www.google.com/webhp?rls=ig#sclient=psy-ab&hl=en&rls=ig&site=webhp&source=hp&q=what+does+the+i+stand+for+in+ipod+ipad+iphone&pbx=1&oq=what+does+the+i+stand+for+in+ipad&aq=1b&aqi=g1g-b1&aql=&gs_sm=c&gs_upl=588l6824l0l8946l33l20l0l12l12l3l600l7061l0.,or.r_gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&cad=b
  13. I bank with Cahoot and, as a security precaution, I was advised to download and install it. After a few weeks I ditched it as it was slowing my browser down to a crawl. It was quite difficult to uninstall too !
  14. Update: Mine is all metal (grey) so that explains it
  15. I think the above means that my ipod nano isn't affected and just as well as it can take up to 6 weeks to get the replacement sent back ! My ipod nano is a 4GB model and the one illustrated on the link is only a 1 GB model and so my ipod is probably second generation not first generation ?
