I'd rather not then. I'll leave them be.

There are many Free programs that record your screen (or, portion of your screen)

Will we live enough to see the end of the world?
Do you remember the revolution of XP over Windows 9x and Me?

That is why I had to put down my old desktop computer with XP Pro..............give to poor bastard the old shot gun :'( :'( and this why I got myself a new computer with W8 it's not to bad just a little bit of a disappointment that MS went to far taking away some everyday features we used all the time.........don't tell me why it a long bloody story it has taken me a while to get the new feel of W8. I would loved to give MS the bloody middle finger >:(
