Cy, LOL! I am well aware that this comp has lots of problems. Hence why I'm ditching it as soon as possible. You mentioned "microbloat". Consider me a newbie - what exactly is that? And since you said that it was caused by running JFW 10 as it came on the installation disk, would that mean that updating jaws would solve the problem? I'm also still wondering if reformatting the system and starting from scratch would be a good idea or not?

(LOL) Now, if it helps I have a similar problem with Microbloat Outlook 2003. Occasionally (about 70% of the time) when I come back into Outlook I have to tab down to find the in'box. I actually think it is some sort of Microbloat update as I am still using the JAWS 10 from the installation disk. It also behaves the same with JAWS 9.

I could rant on and on about why I want a new laptop, but that's beside the point... I often leave Outlook running almost all day. More often than not, when I navigate back to Outlook to check emails, JFW gives me the message "List box. Use the arrow keys to navigate up and down" but won't read me the title and subject of the email. Restarting either Outlook or JFW, in any combination, usually doesn't solve the problem, and I have to restart the system. Also for some reason, when I exit or start JFW, the signal is lost to my external monitor, and I have to unplug and reattach the external monitor. Whether or not I have zoomtext running at the same time doesn't seem to have any relevance to the problem occurring. I'm running Vista Business 32bit, with JFW 10 and Outlook 7. Any help with either problem would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, Will P.S. Would reformatting and going back to XP make my system any more stable, ie less problems with Jaws, zoomtext, etc?
