Hi Gang

Long time been gone but back now.

I thought I would change the name of my computer, so I did the procedure and everytime I clicked on change I would get this little box, no matter how I would word it. This is what I was trying to put in "DICKS MAIN COMPUTER" with out the quotes. I used no characters at all as you can see. I tried this on 2 other compters and got the same results.
