Hope you get some help as well. The lad's lucky as I've found out from him he took out an extended type warrenty so maybe... just maybe... a techie will be coming out to sort out his PC. He's now unable to do a system restore as there isn't a restore point available - message from the system restore programme or run anything on it now - 'though it would just before I posted to the forum!
