I hope you all realize how amazingly helpful you are to so many of us. I'm\nsure you get asked the same questions ad nauseum, but I gotta tell you, I\nsure appreciated the links and more in-depth advice I received last night\nwhen I was asked to fix what may have been the result of a critical update\ninstallation gone awry (of course variables such as their BlackIce GUI\n(business network), some hoggish old kids programs and little maintenance\nsurely added to it). (My happy results are posted in\nmicrosoft.public.win98_apps). Thanks!\n\nThe files on the folks' computer were mostly important business files, and I\nplan to get a lot of mileage out of gently chiding them for being part of\nthe group of people who have yet to make the transition over to, "those who\nback up their important files every week (or more often)," (thanks Pegasus).\nI think they were really concerned about losing it all (no, no pressure\nthere for me...).\n\nWhew. Jeanne.
