    No, that's on, lol.

    Just fixed it.

    The problem was solved by resetting O&O Shutup 10 back to the default windows state.
    Forgot that it was still on the computer and I was going nuts.

    That's the thing with portable software - don't forget about it.

    Thanks anyway!

    That's a good one! I can zip you a copy of my O&O config if you want to tinker. I have it pretty well locked down, but can do want you want to. Just yell......
