You can roll your eyes all you want, but Mr. Montgomery is correct. You
aren't going to get an answer because none of us can see the previous
entries to this thread. This "vistaheads" to which you are posting is not a
regular web forum. It is a web interface that scrapes Usenet postings. The
rest of us who are using real newsreaders to access Usenet (the far better
way) don't see the thread the way you do. Therefore we know nothing of what
went before and you won't get the help you need.
Read through the information below which will show you how to set up a
newsreader. Even if you don't want to do that, read at least some of the
information at the links under "How To Post" and then make a new post with
all your pertinent details so someone can help you.
Since you are using a web interface, you may not realize that this is really
a newsgroup. You will get far more out of this resource if you learn to use
a newsreader. There are many good newsreaders for Windows, but you can use
Outlook Express (XP) or Windows Mail (Vista) since you already have it.
Here are some links to information about newsgroups:
