Now are talking about adobe photoshop? it might be just a compatibility bug between 7 RC and that program...eventhough I think others would have said so by now

BTW we are both on the forums al ot and yet I have never talked to you personally...My name is Zidane2424(Chris) and it is nice to meet you

Yeah, I just installed RC today, and I had a few instances of explorer, and internet explorer do that. So far only once for internet explorer, but a few from explorer. Oddly it does not create any entries under the troubleshooting history so I can see what might have caused it. I will continue to monitor and seek and answer. BTW nice sig.
Zid, you smoother talker you......lol.

Such problems would probably be solved by simply upgrading to the 7600 RTM version of 7 since it is a lot more stable, compatible and has far less bugs.

Apparently an upgrade cannot be done because of compatibility, so i will put up with it until i get Windows 7 Full installed.

Thank you to all that answered
