My ?recently used file? list plays up - sometimes when I click on ?File?, all 9 files show (I like it on the maximum setting); when I boot up next day maybe all nine will be there - or maybe four, one, or none. The files on the list don?t disappear as long as the computer?s switched on, only between boot-ups. I have Norton System Works and running all the checks hasn?t turned anything up. I routinely defrag / check for viruses / generally keep my system clean. I used to run Word 97 on Windows 95 when the problem first began; after I changed to W98 I re-installed Word but the problem persists. I use a Toshiba 300 CDS laptop.
