You really need to explain in what program or context you're getting this, if windows is messing up, just boot from a linux live disk, copy over all the files you need and then re-install windows.

Thanx Quantum, I seem to have sorted it now...the reason the security certs were out of date, was because the computer clock was set at 2019 :o, and the rest seemed to go ok when i downloaded all the microsoft critical updates.

All I have to do now is find her a cheap wireless Broadband thingy, the laptop has got Bluetooth all over it, so i'll check that first

her mobile phone is O2, and their stuff is expensive. she doesn't want a land line.

Yes I did Tex Thankyou. Her prob now is to get on broadband, I tried to set her up with Virgin Media, but she owes something when it was NTL, so they want her to pay that, plus a £100 deposit. If she stopped tarting about in night clubs, and her nightly bottle of wine, she could afford it. But, what do I know? I'm only her long suffering dad. LOL
