    broe23, you are a jerk. nteuscher was being incredibly respectful, and it was not his/her fault you didn't understand the problem. Then, when you couldn't accept that you didn't understand what he/she was saying, you say to do research online? That's exactly what he was doing! This is a forum for people to help others.

    On a side note, I tried David Bailey's solution and it did not work for me, unfortunately, although I am on Windows 10, so it might operate differently now.
