Tour operators are keeping a close eye on the situation in Thailand where the army has seized control from the government.

Under a nationwide curfew, tens of thousands of tourists across the country are being ordered to stay inside from 10pm until 5am daily until further notice.

The UK Foreign Office said... "If you're in any doubt about your safety, stay in your accommodation."

According to a survey conducted by Omnibus for Britain’s Royal Mail comparing a number of holiday destinations, tourists in Greece pay the least for bottled still water but the most for a cup of coffee.

How to Update Windows XP After End of Support

For info only: at own risk
Super find Maik !!

I've been experimenting with this new info and it does exactly what it says on the tin. Perfect

If anyone else is put off by the negative comments re. "lack of Office support", then that's easily resolved by creating a second .reg file to turn OFF the change by setting DWord to 0

Bravo TonyD !

I waved goodbye to XP 4-5 years back but looked at this and wondered about the impact on Office applications.  Well done for devising a clever work-round - almost as ingenious as the solution itself.  But it's all a bit complicated for the rest of us who don't feel so confident messing with the registry.
