You'll want it in there for 20 mins at gas mark five, and don't forget to take it out of the freezer first!! ;)

You could have a virus, do a full anti-virus scan, and a spywear scan of your computer.

If not, then maybe do a disk clean-up oepration and a disk-defrag, to get rid of unneeded files and stuff like that to free up space and generaly make your PC run alot better

IF none of them work, then youve got a more serious problem

This sometimes happens to my PC. Its rather annoying especially if you're trying to add stuff to your files and haven't actually "saved it". You then have to do it ALL again!! I find its mostly if I move the mouse too early before a page has fully downloaded!!. However, we tried this disk clean up and de-fragmentation. It certainly seems to work!

I gave up on my XP machine because the mouse kept freezing, and bought a Vista machine. Even this is not bug free - Windows Explorer keeps freezing up on this, but this is less serious than the XP problems. As Nigel indicates, always wait for one program or task to complete before trying another. Also, don't try and run too many peripherals (e.g. printer, scanner, external hard drive) at once. In theory, modern PCs can multitask, but theory and practice don't always coincide. CCleaner is a good, safe program, and it is worth checking out your registry from time to time (click on "Issues" in the left hand menu). All the Apple Mac users will be sitting back smugly when reading the posts on this problem.

I've got a new camera and, not surprisingly, it's got more megapixels than the old one.

The only problem appears to be that I can't upload my pictures to add to an ABF post. I am told that I'm either timed out or the picture size is too great.

Previous camera had pictures of c1.50 MB, new one has c2.25MB.

Any ideas? (Can't answer any questions immediately as I'm away for a few days)

Tony, if you download IrfanView http://www.irfanview.com/ it will allow you to resize the photos and make the file sizes smaller so the forum will accept them. For some reason it won't accept photos over 2mb or so in size.

Or if your new camera has an onboard editing facility you could use that to resize the pictures you want to upload to a smaller size - thats what I tend to do.

There is also PixResizer for if you wish to batch photos, and ideal rezise for the forum (Well what i use) is around 800 pixels wide.
Download can be found here:

I can recommend PixResizer, very easy to use, it saves your presets so one whole folder worth of pictures can be resized with 2 clicks!

Adam, Andy, Jamie and Rob, thanks for the advice.

I've only just seen your responses; I'll give them a whirl tomorrow.

Thanks again.
