Hi, Barry, hi, listers!

I have a bit of good news on this one at last.

This morning I tried accessing the Microsoft hotfix request page for 
this fix in Firefox rather than in Internet Explorer and I tried 
using the Webvision plugin capture solving gizmo on the visual 
verification and it worked! It told me it had submitted it and then a 
couple three seconds later I was told the resolved capture had been 
added to my clipboard and was ready to  paste into the appropriate 
edit box. It was so smooth! This was the first time this capture 
resolving thing had actually worked for me but I was thrilled!,g>

I then received the hotfix by email in a password protected 
self-extracting archive that needs to be downloaded and extracted 
within a week after requesting it. I did this and tried to apply the 
hotfix only to be told that there was no need for me to install the 
hotfix as my service pack (sp3) was newer than the fix. so I still 
have the problem but at least was able to request thehotfix all by myself.
,g>

I'll fiddle around with this some more and report back with you guys 
if I do get the problem fixed.

I had deleted all those user lexicon files and stuff  befoer btw.

Thanks much and God Bless,

Doris
