      Hi Brad,

      At the moment I cannot think of what might be causing that, but I
      have a few questions. When you double click on an associated
      file are you switched into NoteTab or are you manually switching
      and seeing a new document there? Also, can you always reproduce
      the problem after rebooting? You might try opening the
      Associations tab in Options, Remove the file type, and click OK
      so the registry gets updated. Go back in Options and Add the
      file type back. I assume you have tried this with other editors?
      Does the same thing happen whether NoteTab is open or closed?
      How about with the program icon on the Taskbar or in the system
