Re: killjaws.bat, not sure if I did it right

You're right. Exit worked. It just sounds, using jaws, as if what's in that 
box is part of a folder tree view, and it was hard to imagine that I could 
just type something, any more than I'd type something directly onto the 
screen when I'm in Windows Explorer. Thanks.

And how do you get out of that command box or whatever it is? It's not
as if I can't alt f 4 out of it to do other things, but I'd like to just
exit it properly. Do I have to be careful not to type or delete anything
in it?
What's its purpose? Why was I recommended to launch it?

To open the command prompt in the run dialog type cmd and press enter.

I believe it is also in all programs, accessories

Roger,

By "replace" you mean correct the spelling? Thanks, but I just did and
that
didn't help, either. In fact, that window no longer flashes when I click
on
the icon. Here is the corrected line from the batch file, which as I
said, I
copied directly from what was provided early in the thread by someone. I
deleted the "a" from the filename:
:

tskkill /F /IM jfw.exe

Maybe one of the other suggestions that were provided in this thread
uses a
path to the file? Because I believe one version of this that I saw
earlier
includes a path under c:\ involving a few numeraals. So please look
again at
the above line and consider that it might give the batch file incorrect
directions?

Thanks. I wish I could remember the more complex filename I saw for this
file earlier, but I can't.

long a different path

Hi,
If you are using XP home, then replace "taskkill" with "tskill".  After
you
have tryed this, let us know.
Good Luck,
Roger
