Hmm, I use Chrome, but after reading all the rave reviews for firefox, think I'll try it out.

Chrome is very intrusive being Googles browser, try Firefox for comparison, you can always go back, but I bet you don`t !

A brilliant free cleaner is CCleaner (Formerly known as Crap Cleaner). It`s free, easy to run for both temp. files, browsing history and registry keys etc. I use it on all versions of Windows without any interference and you can run it when you want to, daily, weekly or whenever you want.



Also a great back up to your anti virus is Malwarebytes, free version available and a great tool to have should you need to remove a nasty. Run it weekly in any mode for peace of mind.

Free version here,



Hope this helps.

Alan, another Firefox fan here too, I have used it for many years and find it less problematic and less intrusive than all other browsers.

Have a look here,


Don`t spend on protection until you know what you have or need, are you using Microsft 7 or another system ?

There are some great free progs. and Microsoft Security Essentials is excellent.


Downpipe stop end

Do you mean a Gutter stop end? If so you might have a problem replacing a single part if it`s very old, especially if it`s lead or similar. Have you thought of replacing the gutter and stops etc, You should be able to pick that up quite cheaply frpm Wickes, or a builders mechant, could save you a lot of time and money.

Wickes plastic gutter stops here, hope this helps.

Thanks Dan I've been onto the Wilkinsons site and bought some bulbs,I must say the prices are impressive, so I'm looking forward to getting out to the garden once they arrive. Thanks again

Hi Annie, my pleasure. Like many others I use / have used T&M , Suttons, Parkers etc. but can be expensive for ordinary seeds, bulbs etc so I looked at Wilkos. and others for value for money lines for the everyday stuff and have not been let down and saved £££££££££££££££££`s, hope this helps others too.

I know it is correct, but how do you fix panels to fence posts if the posts are nearer you?  Surely it's easier to fix panels if the posts are away from you?  It has always puzzled me.

I can only speak for myself, I have never used this rule of thumb with standard panels, I am sure it`s easier with vertical boards and arris rail etc. I have always placed posts just inside the boundary and attatched panels from my side, easier to avoid conflicts, maintain and replace.

That`s the important bit, who actually owns the fence?, it`s position in relation to the legal boundary, it`s worth finding out before you do anything at all really.

Have a read of this, taken from boundary problems website, hope this helps.


Fences as supports: Can I hang things on my neighbour's fence?
Fences as supports: Can I use my neighbour's fence as a support for my own plants?
Fences, appearance of: Can I paint my side of my neighbour's fence?

Only if your neighbour gives you permission to do so.

Leaning things against your neighbour's fence, hanging things on your neighbour's fence, even using your neighbour's fence as a makeshift retaining wall, will place a much heavier burden on the fence panels and supporting posts than they were designed to bear. The consequences of such actions are easy enough to predict and you will be liable for the cost of any repairs. On top of that you will still have to do, and pay for, the work that you did incorrectly and which resulted in the damage to your neighbour's fence.

In short, anything you do to your neighbour's fence without your neighbour's permission
- including staining, painting or applying preservative to your side of your neighbour's fence -
amounts to criminal damage.
