Re: [NTO] Sorry to have sent the original to HTML BUT
Meant to get back to your sooner. I followed your suggestion and deleted the browsers.dat file and rebooted this ole thing and she works good now. And that was great for I was working on some Web Sites and need to check what I was doing before I FTPed it up to the hosting site. I will probably have some more fun? soon as I plan to try once again to get FireFox to be the second browser. Since it is a much later edition now perhaps it may.
Thanks again for your good support.

The HTML list was fine to post on; I only suggested this list for
the adware/spyware tools. Thanks for running them. So, that does
not appear to be the problem. I think in it best on this list too
because of troubleshooting if we can do any. It keeps the other
lists for more of what they are intended for.
There's quite a few threads on the browser lockup problem on
various lists. You might search for browser lockups or browser
Is it IE that you are using? You might try another browser for
now. I think a work-around might be to configure it in View |
Options | Custom Launch. The path would look something like the
following with the extra code at the end:
D:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe ^**
If you are using the default it would be:
C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe ^**
You use the Launch Document tool that you can put on the Toolbar
and/or the Shortcut menu both found in Options under those tabs
to view in browser. The icon is like a white paper with a
lightening bolt in it. It is also found under the Tools menu
(Ctrl+T), but you have to have it on the Toolbar in order to use
Ctrl+T, the keyboard shortcut.
Can you send me your "appcompat.txt" found in your documents and
settings\temp folder please. Oh, go to Windows Explorer (or My
Computer) and right click over NotePro.ini and choose Properties.
Click on the Compatibility tab and see how it is configured. If
you are in XP, it should not be checked. If you are in XP and the
box is not checked, try checking the box and run as Win2000 just
to see what happens. There are a small amount of you with the
problem, so I guess it is going to be in some configuration or
Windows OS, or a common file(s) loaded on your computers. Perhaps
even some common hardware like a video card.
Also, if the following file is not very big and text based, could
you send it. Try opening it in NoteTab first and see if you get
binary warnings. If so, don't bother sending it.
