    I told you something always goes wrong with me and a computer.  I did what you said, the Disabled box was checked, I clicked on Next and this box comes up saying: Error on value: SunJavaUpdateSched.  There was an error creating a MSConfig key.  Then when I went to X out, it said complete and restart the computer.  ?????????  That's how it goes with me, something is always thrown up on the screen that I never know what to do with!  I'm leaving it alone, it said it did it, so that's fine with me.

    About the cat - it is about a year old. I rescued it from outside when it was sick and its mother abonded it. It is a female, not spayed yet (planned to do so but if she was pregnant, I wanted to wait, and wasnt sure), possibly pregnant. There are a lot of wild cats in my area, and I saw her, tried to get her, but she just ran. All my other pets loved her as a friend, and I lived her very much. I hope one of the wild cats didnt convince her to leave me.

      Oh no, Coco.  I am so sorry.  Since she was a female rescue, if it's possible she was pregnant, she very well could be looking for a safe place to have her kittens.  That happened to us on the first one we rescued.  We were feeding her, petting her, letting her in, we figure she's our cat at this point.  Then she disappeared for a four days and we looked everywhere and called for her.  (Unlike my cats, she actually came to "kitty, kitty, kitty"!)  When she showed up, she was skinnier.  She would come every day, hang out a bit, but always left and was gone most of the time.  One day I decided to follow her and we went way up the road until we got to someone's house where she cut back behind and into the woods. I didn't want to trespass on someone's land, so I went back home.  A few days later she showed up at a shed way down at the end of our property with the kittens.  The next day she moved them up to the house and behind the hedges in front of the house.  So maybe that's what yours is doing.  Don't give up yet.  How long had you had her?  Because this cat we had only a month when she left to have her babies.  Keep your fingers crossed and I hope she shows up.

      I have had her about a year, since she was a few weeks old.
      (P.S. Can we go back on topic somewhat? Thanks for the message.)

        I know, I figure we'll get in trouble if we keep talking cats.  I hope you get her back.  If you do, do let me know.  I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

          OMG!  WONDERFUL!  She was out "catting around".  Now she just might be pregnant, so look out!  I'm so glad she's back and I know you are too.  You never knew whether they are somewhere hurt or lost when that happens, but am so terribly delighted she is back home.  Give her tons of love!

          Can we please at least get somewhat back on topic? Thank you for the encouragement.

          Click Start> Computer> right click the C Drive and choose Properties> enter
          Click Disk Cleanup from there.



          Click OK on the Disk Cleanup Screen.
          Click Yes on the Confirmation screen.



          This runs the Disk Cleanup utility along with other selections if you have chosen any. (if you had a lot System Restore points, you will see a significant change in the free space in C drive)

            Thanks, Dave.  I did run the Disk Cleanup.  My computer seems fine now.  I did not know about WOT...how interesting.  I will download that for sure!  Now, because I have that on my computer, will it work with both IE and Google Chrome?  For some reason, when I get on Facebook with IE, it starts messing up and things go haywire, like freezing, not showing big spaces of text or pictures, and sometimes just totally stops working.  So I use Google Chrome for Facebook and do not have that problem.  Somewhere along the way I was told IE has glitches that it will do that sometimes as Facebook is not the only website I've been on with IE and it has acted up.

              I went to WOT and got my question answered...they do not have WOT for IE evidently.  I saw Google Chrome, Foxfire, Opera, and one other, but not IE.  So I guess you don't need to answer that question for me!
