I'm not sure about the taskbar problem, but where it says 'XP Home' by your name, its your user title. You can change it to XP Pro, or Recoil, or anything else by going to your 'User Control Panel'. You can go to it by click on 'user cp' at the top of this page.... you cant miss it. Then when you reach your user cp, you chould see a list of options. Click on 'Edit Profile'. When that page loads up, you should find out how to change yout title.
If you have any more questions, just post here and I'll help you out..
P.S Ive attached a pic of where you chnage your title to help you out more..
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
