Browser Locks up computer

tools to get, but you might search for "lavasoft" and get theirs
to try. Check out the NoteTab Off Topic list for more information
and links for that sort of software. You might try using two of
You may sign up for the different discussion mailing lists from
either of the links below. We use yahoogroups for the lists.
Please read the following if you decide to sign up!
If you sign up for any of the discussion lists, please do *not*
post questions about NoteTab Clips and other scripting languages
(such as RegExp, Perl, CGI, etc.) on the NoteTab Basic list.
More difficult tasks should be posted on the Clips or Scripts
lists. HTML should be posted on the ntb-HTML list and off topic
discussion takes place on the ntb-OffTopic list. The MailBag
Assistant, Easy Thumbnails, Easy Imager, and Album Express lists
are for discussion of those programs.
The most important thing to remember is please leave the NoteTab
Basic list for the *_very basic_* use of NoteTab. The other lists
are a lot more flexible, for instance, Clips can be and are
welcomed on the HTML list. Thanks!!!
