Actually Peter what I was going to try it on was an amplifier. Maybe it
will help me track down the problem.
Well, if it won't go on at all anymore, then it may be too late for the freeze method to work. But it could be something like an electrolytic capacitor gone bad.
I suppose that by now many of you have seen the images and heard the stories of Microsoft's sweatshops in China, but for those of you who haven't ...

15-hour shifts, six and seven day work weeks, workers paid pennies per hour, living in packed and filthy dormitories ...
If your mouse says "Microsoft" on it, you're touching EVIL !!
What mouse do you use? Logitech isn't less evil.
According to the article, the following companies also use the same standards:
Hewlett-Packard, Samsung, Foxconn, Acer, Logitech and Asus
Life isn't fair. We should all be thankful we're on the less shitty side.
I'm singling out Microsoft because it's particularly heinous when *they* do it. :)
We have a contract mfgr there. Onsite dorms, cafeterias, yeah...
15-hour work days? Yeah, but the're done in shifts... workers go home
on weekends too.
I may be going there in a few months to get their systems online again.
I'm trying to delete 5 files in explorer, and I was able to find this termanl and as I write this message it's still not done deleting.
Oh ther eit goes. Finally.
Another happy Vista customer.
But same thing really.
from the prompt, your files just get deleted, from explorer, it's got to move it in to the recycle bin which is also a tiny operation, but it's got size limits and it has to shuffle things around in the recycle bin and I think some the recyclebin metadata is in the registry. I think.
So it's not trivia, but yeah, there's no way on earth it should take MINUTES to delete a file or two.
Here's a Windoze shortcut that will help you.
(with file selected) SHIFT+DEL forces delete without placing in recycle bin or recycle registry. (but only use it if you're sure you dont need the files anymore)
