Thanks, will give it a try.
I think in my case was somewhat user induced - windows vista appears to have some "virtual c:\program files" kind of thing going on, I got caught up in that and the regular c:\program files, my arduino stuff is now all over the place and not working at all.  Old Sony Vaio just died (opened it up to add more memory, now it won't even boot, evenwith putting the old memory back), so we just got a $350 HP Pavilion laptop at Bestbuy to replace it. Big performance differnce over a 2004 era machine, even at 2.2 GHz. Was small & light too, great for airplane travelling. New one is not too bad, touch heavier at 5.1 lbs I think.
So now every computer in the house has a different operating system - my old desktop with XP, son's old desktop changed from XP to Linux, my laptop with Vista, hers with Windows7, son's Mac with SnowLeopard or something.  Configuration nightmare!

And you get to support it all! I finally got all the PCs on to Windows 7, except my netbook which is about dead anyhow and of course the kid's Mac...

I'm not messing with what's working smiley Not at $200 a pop for Win7 licences, and then having to reinstall years of applications...
