Thanks so much, everyone. After my first frustrating evening, I turned my ailing computer over to a friend-of-a-friend who knows far more about such things than I do. And I mentioned this thread here just in case it helped him any. In any case, my computer is working great now. And it looks like I've got a busy weekend ahead of my trying to get caught up. But I'm glad to know about this forum in case I could use it again. Hopefully not often.
