Glad to hear it. I should have posted it earlier but the methods mentioned earlier usually will take care of this type of problem and they're easier to both explain and do. We humans tend to take the easy way when we can.

OLDSALTY--Glad to hear all is well.
I regret my earlier suggestion caused you such problems. The DougKnox fix I linked earlier is for Win98. The one for WinXP is http://www.dougknox.com/xp/scripts_d...strictions.htm
I should have asked which OS you are running before giving you the "fix".

LOL Jim! No, I'm not laughing at you. Just myself. I should have noticed that myself. I thought it odd that there'd be an error in the script. As it turned out, I was the only error involved. I would have paid closer attention if I had found the link elsewhere but.... Gee, it's getting so you can't even trust your friends anymore. Just kidding. Oh well, no harm was done. It was no big deal. Just had to take a look at the script to see what it did in order to know what to undo.

No it was my fault. I should have told you up front. Thanks for your help.
