Hi and thank you for any help in avance. In my windows task manager, I have several instances of MSHTA.exe running. A new one opens every 15-45 minutes; I have had as many as 12 running at one time. I am pretty much a novice user and have little experience with this sort of things, but I can follow directions! Again, thank you for any help.
