Ah ha. I will try method 2. Actually, I missed that in all of my Googling. I know I should have been more specific and technical. I hate when my users try to get me to solve problems and they aren't specific enough. Now I am a hypocrite. Kate: I'm trying not to reinstall Windows at all because there is an important piece of software for our organization which I will be unable to reinstall because someone stole the installation CD. Thanks for the advice, folks! I will try the Spuninst idea this afternoon and let you know if it was successful.
