Thanks Brink i'll do that...i'm checking either a kind of pluging dedicated to gimp that looks suspect, 'cause it has gone wrong since.

Pasty by MilesAhead

Pasty by MilesAhead

Pasty
out of the box pastes selected text into Windows Search. But you can set the hotkey to open another search engine. The hotkey for Pasty itself is also adjustable.

Recommended usage: start with Windows and let it sit in the Task Tray. Highlight text in an editor or web browser, then hit the Pasty hotkey. The search engine will open and the text will be entered via macro action.

You can download from this page:
Hotkeys

Just scroll down a bit until you see the Pasty link.

I've tried it on Vista64 and Windows7 32 bit.

btw the About dialog shows the current hotkey for both Pasty and the external search in case you forget what you set it to.


Edit: For those who prefer to download from well known sites, the
latest version of Pasty(v. 1.2) is now on Softpedia:

Hi, I've installed back the Gimp 2.6.6 and looks it does work without closing the programm at each start.

The pluging that have mess around is LQR aka "Liquid Rescale":

"gimp-lqr-plugin_0.6.1-liblqr_0.4.1_win32.exe"

For those that might want to install this one , don't at the moment (or maybe do & tell).

I'll quote later this post, to give the info about lqr pluging...

Here it is:

After just finishing going thru 36 pages making sure it wasn't on list and not seeing it. (hopefully I didn't miss it)

ExtractNow :

ExtractNow - Extract multiple archives easily

"ExtractNow is a simple utility that allows you to extract multiple archives quickly and easily. ExtractNow is not a complete archival solution. It's main purpose it to allow the user to extract multiple archives easily."

Download link :

http://www.extractnow.com/extractnow.exe

I have used the paid version of Winzip and have used WinRar and 7-Zip.

ExtractNow allows me to accsess all of the above formats with just one application.

I just got done re-installing it now myself, so I figured I would post it.

Sorry if it was already mentioned, 36 pages is a lot to go thru!

BTW : I am running Windows 7 x64 and it works fine on it.

There is a nice search within thread tool at the top of the thread pages below the thread page numbering. Handy for this sort of stuff.
