i tried this and it doesn't resolve the issue. on a test laptop, i installed RAM SS by itself and it works fine. i did notice that the RSS info at the bottom is blocked on my struc eng laptops but on my tester, the RSS feeds come thru and the program works fine. a full uninstall, reinstall did not resolve the issue.
