    Josh
    Welcome back, sorry things didn't work out for you as you'd hoped.

    Why would anyone attempt to use Vista until at least SP1 is available? (N.B. the same applied to XP, Win2000 etc. etc.)

    The end of file has been flagged like that for as long as I can remember (way back to the 7r versions). It had NEVER caused me any problems.
