Hi List, I'm at my wit's end to know what to do! I'm having a serious problem with JAWS.

Quite often, JAWS is repeating a word or phrase and not stopping. Even if I press control or alt f4, it still carries on, and the only way I can stop it is to do a complete re-boot.

I phoned Triss at Sight and Sound and he was really helpful and advised me to go through the systems settings for JAWS for Windows XP which I did. I run Service pack 2 by the way.

However, this has made no difference. I've done a repair, and also a complete re-install of JAWS 7 and the same thing has happened.

I can't help thinking that this problem wasn't there before they put in my new hard drive. I know they updated the mother board bios for me, but I just can't think how to stop this problem from occurring and what it could be. Has anyone else ever had this with JAWS? This is the first time I've ever encountered such a problem, and it can't do my computer any good to keep re-booting all the time.
