    Windows 8 Pro

    Hi John,

    I'll give that a go but I suspect it's time for a new PC (I actually quite like Win 8 so don't want to downgrade).

    Thanks for all your help.

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!

    I hated Win8 after trying the Developer's Preview and the Consumer Preview.
    But come June of last year I decided that I had to upgrade in order to be prepared for helping folks with their Win8 systems.

    I installed the Release Preview then and muddled my way through.
    As I used it I came to like it more and more. Now I like it so much that any thoughts of going back to Win7 are gone from my head.

    It's a good OS and it has some nice points that recommend it over Win7.
    And, with the Live Tiles thing, it's poised to change how most people do computing.
    Also, we're seeing more and more changes around that web that are centered around using touchscreen technology (see all the big squares and rectangles on webpages now - makes it easier to touch!).

    Good luck to you!
