    The Javascript running the MSDN forum is using the other 4.0 GB :-).

    Actually, you are in the wrong forum. If you are using Vista, you might ask in Microsoft Answers.

  • Nice of you to answer here, David, but it only encourages people to post more questions to this forum that don't belong here.

    That's why I just tell them they are in the wrong forum and tell them to ask in the "What forum is for ?" forum where they ought to post.

  • Mike, it's Sunday. Lighten up :-).

    Besides, I did not give the OP the (real) answer, even though I think I know it. I told him/her to look in Microsoft Answers.

    Unless you think my answer could be the correct one...

    Or is it you pulling my leg?
