The only slight concern I have is that if there are file associations to FSX
these will be removed on uninstalling - but they files may not necessarily
"reattach" to FS2004.

I'll probably leave the Demo on for a couple of days, then run the
uninstall prog, to get rid of it. What you say about possible sharing
sounds logical. Since my FS9 is on a different drive to the Demo, with
VFR GM on yet another drive, that might be exascerbating the problem. If
I run the uninstal, then Regvac, that might get rid of the pauses...or
is the plural "paws" ?
