Many thanks for taking time to help, George - particularly on what must have 
been a busy day!  Actually it was a Vista machine, but after much fiddling I 
got it back to normal - although I don't know exactly how I did it.   It seemed 
to behave slightly differently from XP and I must study it more carefully in 
case similar problems arise again.

Enjoy the remainder of the Christmas celebrations,

Best wishes,
