If I may Jacee.

Newmarket2 computers don't fix them selfs.
If you run the program that Jacee recommended and post the log as recommended Jacee can analyze it and look for possible problems.

She is one of this Forms experts on such matters.

The program cost you nothing and Jacee's expert knowledge cost you nothing.
I would highly recommend following the suggestion/recommendations that Jacee has given.
The only motive Jacee has is to try and help you.
