Left aligned and no horizontal gap halfway up the screen.

Not drifting apart, excuse the pun Dritwood.

Thanks Lawrence, thats put them back to the left hand side.

Restarted 3 times and holding, but boy it sure is a slow boot.

8mb of ram too.

Presume you mean 8GB? 8mb wouldn't work very well!!

It shouldn't be slow to boot. Usually that is because there are a lot of unnecessary programs loading.

Download and run Malwarebytes from bleepingcomputer. See whether you have picked up a heap of PUPs. Clear and re-run till nothing else turns up.

Then run Adaware from bleepingcomputer.

OK lin still getting used to bits and bytes, lol.

Will run those as mentioned above, which reminds me, must do wifey's as well, she gets far too many PUPS.

Mainly use the lappy for restoring PAF5 to it, mainly take it to other rellies doing family history.

Workhorse is still XP SP3 desktop.

Ps.will do the proccesses while watching Tipping Point and a cuppa.

Use adwcleaner, it'll probably do a better job than adaware. Run it scan, if it finds anything click on clean. Wait for it to finish, reboot then run it again / file menu / uninstall
