Re: AdAware scripts, different problem

Thanks for your patient interest.  BTW, this is just an ordinary Dell 
Dimension 3000 PC running under Win XP Home.  I wouldn't have expected its 
video settings to be nonstandard or exceptional.  Yes, the display is set to 
Windows Standard.

Have an excellent  time away, whatever it is you're doing.  Look forward to 
finding a solution to this glitch.

Yes, that's the answer. Different computers render colors from a few
different color schemes. I have 2 color schemes incorporated into the
scripts, and I'll just have to add yours also, to look for your selected tab
as black text on a white background.
I'm out of time now, but I'll get right on that when I get back after July
21.

Best regards,
Dean
