Thanks Brian and Danny
Yep - I found closing down the extra versions was a solution
I also ran spybot and found a browser hijacker (just returned from a month in Linux without such hindrances) and it may be somehow related to that - the problem SEEMS to have gone . . .
I've been pretty happy using IDLE supplemented by SciTe when wanting a
better editor than that provided by IDLE.
Will have a look at SciTe
thanks for your help
- appreciate it . . .
