Re: Vista repair install
Thanks for the replies.
It is not a Dell disc so don't think it will work for repair install, does
seem unusual that this option has been removed when it was always available
With regard to icons not working, think I've sorted that one out.
When I try and run CMD as administrator from desktop icon or access device
manager from computer icon on desktop, I get a message briefly flashing up
on the taskbar titled 'RarDLTitle'.
Uninstalled WinRAR and all has gone back to normal, very strange!
