I now for four times acted as following:

I bought a single support call from Microsoft. We together detected that
my problem was caused by errors in Microsoft code. They corrected. I
paid nothing because Microsoft's support is free if the error was caused
by errors of Microsoft. The support was friendly, helpful and quick.

That is one reason because I have nothing against Microsoft. Of course,
no one paid me the work I did. And there are big problems with Windoze 2k
and WiXP, sometimes so big problems that I will not use such systems except
if I'm forced to.

Windows NT is getting worse. Unfortunately.
For security reasons Windows is disastrous.
