agree

possible has two finite states: it can or it cant/wont - as a measurement only and ever: 0% or 100%

probability though can be expressed as anything including and between 0% and 100%.

and being pedantic: probability is not ever less than 0% nor ever beyond 100%
- that would be yield which is altogether a different animal.


so true: the OP should have used "probability" (or some contextual synonym like "chance.")
after many otherwise intelligent sounding suggestions that achieved nothing the nice folks at Technet said the only solution was to low level format my hard disk then reinstall my signature. Sadly, this still didn't fix the issue!
