I still have the document where it says that the warranty has been voided. I will inform the citizens advise bureau and will let you guys know what happens.The health check is to ensure that the programs are working and that the performance of the laptop, like speed etc, has not been affected. My only fear is that, since my laptop is only a few months old, if i get a problem or an accident happens, it will not be covered in the warranty. :-(The manufacturer's warranty does not say anything about partitioning the hard disk.I will let you know of the outcome.Many thanks for your support. I really appreciate it.Suntish.> Date: Mon, 30 Jul 2007 11:12:56 +0100> From: drinky76 at yahoo.com> Subject: RE: [Wolves] Sick of M$> To: wolves at mailman.lug.org.uk> > --- Suntish Narain> <suntish_narain at suntish-narain.co.uk> wrote:> > > Rob,> >  > > i bought a laptop from PC World last October, took> > the insurance on it, which entitles me for a free> > health check.
