nickthegreekuk,

Here is another Microsoft article that may, or may not, be of assistance:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929734/en-us

Look it over and determine whether anything in the article pertains to your
situation. Sometimes you can get a full fix, but sometimes you can get only
a partial fix and sometimes no fix. Good luck.
