|It took a while for the whole Full (NOT Quick) format, (CDR) Win2000 install, (CDR) WinXP UPgrade "do-over", but it solved the problem.|
BTW, the "0" to "1" registry change solution was written in a help column of a PC type magazine to speed up the hassle of the whole WinXP re-install procedure. There was no nefarious intent, but it sure seems to have enabled it. That tip is somewhere in my massive torn out pages stack of useful articles. I remember checking my registry entry in 2009 and it indeed was a "1" entry.
