I was using a Acer One netbook in Thailand at the time and the only picture on my screen was one of a frog in an ice cube and someting about the photograph not being able to be shown. I even used the pic in my reply but now I am using an HP laptop I can understand people being baffled by my reply! At some point I will again use the 'Acer' and see what appears now I am back in the UK, sorry to original poster but at the time I could see no picture.
