not answering the question is the issue. whether the person posted to the "correct" news group or not should not be an excuse for not providing the answer and then maybe suggesting there is a better place to post in the future.
too many people presume that everyone who posts, knows all the ins and outs
when really less than half do.
more consideration need to be given.
that's my opinion and that's the truth.,

would you point to the the mvp rule where it is excusable to deny a person an answer because they did not post to the correct news group.

Hmm, wonders why this is being posted to an Vista OS newsgroup when it
pertains to XP.
I suggest posting to microsoft.public.windowsxp.general

There is no MVP rule but posting to the correct group benefits the OP and users of this and every newsgroup. Answering the question is not an issue since it would apply to XP or Vista, but I should have also directed the OP to the correct newsgroup for future reference.
