That certainly changes the subject from NoteTab. ;) You did not
mention that originally, or I missed it. Anyway, along with what
Jim mentioned, you might do a Scandisk and Defrag. You might
find out though since it was such a sudden appearance that you
got a file corrupted somehow whether by a crash or a new
installation of a program or whatever. As I mentioned when you
first wrote, I had a similar problem with Eudora opening the
first message on startup extremely slow and the reply, but once I
did that it ran fine. It started when I clicked on ICQ and it
crashed both it and Eudora. A new install of ICQ and Eudora did
not fix it. Reinstalling Windows over the old did not help, but
when I reinstalled Windows all was well.
I use to troubleshoot all my problems for days which I enjoyed!
Won a few and lost a few, but I don't have the time for it
anymore. I found that most the problems could have been cleared
up with a new install of Windows which would have taken sometimes
a 1/4th of the time I spent troubleshooting. I sure did learn
some things on the way thought. <g> I still go though all my
basic checks for obvious things, but after that if it is pointing
towards software it is "nuke Windows" time.
