  1. Ah I see, no probs.
    TB can sort messages in lots of ways, I choose "Order received -
    ascending - threaded".

  2. I actually did mean to reply to another part of the thread. It just so
    happened that I had your post open when I replied. The little grey cells
    were obviously not working as they should have been:)

    If Vista encrypt the pagefile is necesary Delete Pagefile or now is only for
    performance..

    Vista allows you to encrypt the pagefile using EFS. The downside is that
    decrypting the pagefile, typically a single file that can be 1 gigabyte or
    more in size, can be a time-consuming affair and may significantly impact the
    performance of your computer, particularly when you first boot it up.
