At great expense of time and hair I have found the solution.........
Boot camp - a sort of marriage of Jordan and Stephen Hawkins if you like .
Test - it has Memory map on with my maps to the Iphone for walking and Geocaching plus games with no cd patches installed and the very reliable and user friendly Mac OS for those blogging and photo processing needs.
Not patented so next time you need to replace your PC do it with a Mac and bootcamp !
Let it Snow!
