Shawn, Ed. one quick question does come to mind here. What version of Windows was 7.5 installed on? That dratted ActiveX plugin dates to the developer thing that the Evil Empire created about the time IE5 came out for building layouts and writing scripts using VBscript and so forth.

I should know I wore out a system using it. I should say I wore out a system that was running it. That one retired when it finally started to show its age.
