That's where I encounter the most problems is when closing an application
like internet explorer, AOL instant messenger, or outlook express. With me
though, an application error box pops up asking you ifyou want to send this
error report. Then I have to restart jaws, and if that doesnt work, i have
to reboot entirely.

hmm that Jaws crash only happens when I'm using a SAPI 5 software speech engine like the ATnT or Neospeech voices. I have never had that happen with my Tripletalk hardware synth.
The one I do get though, with all versions of Jaws including 7.1, is sometimes I get no speech or response for a few seconds when I close a program. For example, if I close Internet Explorer, it's several seconds before I hear any feedback about where I am now. This is on a P4 3.2ghz machine with 2gb ram. Those few seconds of no speech seem to last an eternity!

Funny you should mention that. The same thing has been happening on my computer the last two months and it appears to be getting worse.
Often, when JAWS crashes, the computer will make a sound which sounds like a single note on a Marimba:
The shortcut for bringing up jaws will not work and neither will going to the start menu and trying to bring up jaws. In the past, if I closed all applications and hit the escape key a few times, the shortcut (alt; control; J) would bring jaws back up, but, it would not be fully functional until I closed it and brought it up again. Now, even that is not working very often.
I wrote to our friends at Freedom Scientific who said it sounded as if jaws was losing focus, perhaps because of ad where or spy where. However, eye ran my Auntie spy software and it did not help.
I have a powerful computer I purchased from Dancing Dots
. I don't really believe the answer Freedom Scientific wrote me about. They also suggested I may have to reinstall jaws which I'm not looking forward to doing with Sonar. I'm using jaws 5.1.
Any other ideas would be helpful. Thanks.
