Photo booths

I need to get some passport photos - does anybody know the location of a photo booth in the Antequera/Puente Genil areas? I can't for the life of me recall if I've seen any! Do they have them in the railway stations??! Thanks!

Re: Embargo on the house?

It's very odd that the lawyer could not find the plot of land the reference numbers point to but our house and garden came up as soon as the numbers were typed in, the two numbers are quite different by the way. Are you absolutely, totally, 100% certain that there is not some annual bill or tax or ...

Re: Where to buy a house: In Martos or Alcaudete?

Apart from the above-mentioned factory :wink: , I think Martos is a lovely town, far nicer than Alcaudete IMHO. Alcaudete seems a bit, er "down at heel" (apologies to anyone who lives there!) tho I've always found the people friendly enough (which goes for Martos too).

Re: HELLUP! Slow computer!

From what I've read, one of Vista's problems is the amount of memory it uses. I've now also done a disk clean, which tells me it has released more memory. I shall see how things are tomorrow after a reboot. With regards to programmes, all I can see is an install date, not a last used date... Is ther...

Re: HELLUP! Slow computer!

OK found Norton but it doesn't seem to want to be uninstalled very easily, asked me something about a windows firewall...then I got a message about my system's security having probs.
What is SpyBot and do I need it?
