I had no option but to take it to the professionals and am amazed to find that they are stumped over the problem too. It looks like a complete rebuild and that means also paying for everything to be backed up first as I do not want to rely on my external hard drive at the moment.
My son says everything is on my external hard drive (I had been backing it up after all) but he says it is in an encrytped form. I AM TAKING NO CHANCES! I am told though that when I receive my computer back it will be as good as when it left the factory. This is going to end up the most expensive new keyboard and mouse imaginable. Hopefully I will have it back by tomorrow evening.
On the family front, dear little Oliver will be 2 on Saturday. Hard to believe. Even harder to believe is the fact that my son Peter was 40 last weekend. He's enjoying himself in Venice at the moment. Not forgetting Janie who has had a birthday this month too.
On to some awards before posting on this weekend at Pilgrims Hall which I will do separately.
