Sorry that this took so much time; usually when the issue surfaced my computer chugged to a point where I could no longer use the program and elected to restart instead. This is a snapshot I took when the memory hog was really, really bad. I hope it helps.


Apologies again, I seem to have misunderstood the instructions given to me. I saved a snapshot where I should have published it, and I cannot attach a snapshot to this post. I will try to publish it next time, if I am able.

Typo corrected.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
