    Cappy I am very security conscious,I knew for definite (or 99.9 %) that it was Microsoft that I was dealing with so I was prepared to go along with the deal.

    Fully agree about XP it was an excellent operating system but the problem with using XP is - No support any more ( finished in 2014 ) therefore no more security updates or technical support and it cannot operate a lot of the new and improved software which is about these days.
