NOto the Ghost image until AFTER I had "recovered" the original setup.
The image restores a useless system to one that appears alright until about the second bootup when it starts to whinge like an old hypochondiac, moaning about can't find this, or that is corrupt...-try safe mode when it finally reoots itself in the middle, appears to come alive and then starts to moan about net access!!
Clearly NOT a good image though I shall be able to waste half an hour tomorrow when I bring the lot back home and restore the image so that at least I can backup all the data before formatting and a new system.
I just wondered if anyone knew of a miracle cure? like SFC or repairing W2000?
