So is that the W2k updates or office?
Still running W2k on all the main machines, only got XP on the laptops
where it was impossible to get the W2k drivers :(
As I've never used office ... OpenOffice replaced Lotus(Ami Pro) some
time ago ;)

That is something that got turned of here in SP3, I forget why now, but
it solved a number of problems with non-Mircosoft programs!

Just working next door on a machine that goes haywire when you start IE
:( - Paul works for an American company who insist that IE must be used,
but a Virus/Trojan has got through Kapersky, Norton and stop-sign!
Moz is running fine, so I've managed to recover something and get him
working again until I can wipe IE :)
