We have a computer here where the Virtual PC Cursor isn't working in
Internet Explorer version 7.  We're running JAWS 8.0 on this machine.
What happens is that when you bring up a web page, you do not hear "page
has x links" or anything like that.

I tried pressing num pad plus and it says PC Cursor.  I checked in the
configuration manager under advanced options and the Use Virtual PC
Cursor box is checked.  I pressed insert-Z and it said Use Virtual PC
Cursor off, so I know it was turned on when I initially went into
Internet Explorer.

I've not called Freedom about this yet, I'm just wondering if anyone has
any ideas of what might be going on and what other settings to check.
