Glad you all got it fixed. That Classic thing sure would of fit well in the first post. The more info you can give us the better. Just a tid bit more; if you let Windows 7 look like and be Windows 7 it won't be long and you all will like Windows 7.

Well, it simply never occurred to me that it might be dependant on the theme I was using. That's why I didn't think of mentioning it. I was thinking that it was a bug in the graphics driver and it was purely by chance that I happened on the true explanation. Obviously no-one on this forum had discovered this problem up to now, presumably because most don't choose to use the older styles. At least my graphics card and driver have been exonerated which is a relief.

As for getting to like Windows 7 I would say it's more a case of getting used to it's eccentricities. At every new incarnation the designers seem to introduce things more for the sake of making it look new and different than more convenient to use. One example of this is the task bar and quick-launch bar. On my old XP and Vista systems I could mix application and document shortcuts in the same bar. Now that appears to be no longer possible and I really can't see why that change was necessary.

Hi LB,
Yes , I knew about that one and already used it to put some doc shortcuts on the taskbar - but - it still doesn't allow mixing of app and doc shortcuts in the same space. This might not seem important but it has removed some flexibility for no obvious purpose.

Anyway I suppose this is getting off topic so I'd better leave it there
