MSE used to be available for Windows XP, but since that has not been supported for a while it no longer has MSE support. Windows Vista has MSE support, as do subsequent O/Ss'.

As for MSE, only for a short time.

Windows vista and 7 will be losing support this year.

Provided I run ASC daily, the machine runs fast and true.

This really should not be necessary. I run Win 10, MSE and use the standard windows firewall. Occasionally I'll scan it with MalwareBytes anti-malware tool but I probably haven't done that for 6 months. I'm sure it's scanned itself for viruses at some point, but I've certainly not done it myself since I upgraded to 10.

Windows 10 is OK James. Still not quite as good as Ubuntu though...

Hello, friends!

Papa has played to his strengths once again! Never mind computers, he has fixed my clonk! He did need to use his hammer and it hurt but he has changed my left hand front suspension arm,

When he saw the state of the old one, his eyebrows went into his hair and, as Uncle Zel knows, this is quite an achievement.

My right hand one is grumbling a bit as well a quick as you can please, Papa?

He did well there, if yours are anything like your sister's (Pug 407) suspension arms, they're not the easiest job in the world...

Bet that's made you feel better!

Hello, friends!

I think I need to have Words with Papa's Wallet again! I hear screams,

I understand from out techynet thingy that Papa has been ordering service parts for me. I thought that the Wallet was going to allow him to do this, after I parked myself with the Wallet underneath my big, grippy tyres. And there it goes again, attacking him because he has spent money, it's bad enough with all the paparazzi around every time he opens the vicious thing. Oh, and the moths play merry hell with my big comfortable seats. Anyway, I can spit oil at the Press! They soon go away. The Wallet needs more direct methods,

He has also ordered some of those odd rubber studs to fix my engine cover back on with. Dunno why, is not my powerful Diesel engine not the sweetest sound in the world? And he wants to make it quieter. I think he's getting old,,,,,,,,

Love

Otterchops.

Hi Otterchops,

That engine cover helps to turn your engine noise from a deafening roar into a contented rumble. My C5 (She still hasn't told me what she wants me to call her) had broken cover mounts, and the rattle of the cover on the engine was not comfort inducing. I got her a set of cover mounts (for under £10), and the noise from the engine bay got a lot happier (and, I hope, will continue to do so as I get other things sorted). Having a gentle burble from the engine bay is nice, and the power output from the engine can nicely surprise the boy racers in their hot hatches (as they cannot hear what is going on in there!).

My engine cover disappeared when it was first serviced.
Undertray was gone when I got the car.
Both on the "To Do" list :roll:

I have the same list, but I also believe that (certainly in my way of thinking) there are only two types of problems in the world; those that I can deal with, and those that I cannot. I deal with those I can (when my get up and go comes back from wherever it went to!), and pass the other problems onto people who can deal with them.
