Catherine, As Christopher says you can turn off the notification of new 
version message in Preferences, or you might consider upgrading to the 
latest version - I see that 5.30 is now out although I have not yet tried it. 
I am not so sure about the Classic/Modern Skin issue since, if I understand 
your message correctly, you have only just encountered your problems.  I 
would agree though that it is always advisable to select Classic Skin  during 
the installation process.

I suspect that the reason that the L key is not working is that the main 
window is not selected.  Press alt and F, cursor right once, and then go 
down the list and press Enter if necessary to select it.  Then the L key 
should work as normal.  

I suspect that your initial problem arose because you mistook the dialogue 
about upgrading for one asking you to send user information - in that alt 
and L does activate the Later button.

Hope that at least something in the above helps,
