It's funny, but every time I see a problem like this it also has WinXP in the post
Hope it gets sorted for you, I'm in Win2k and haven't run into any problems of that sort, sorry I couldn't help.
Red bellows of flame have blackened my stones
Convulsing my frame and cracking my bones
Hell's dragons of steel who roar in their chains
Crawl into my caves to suck out my veins.....
