I agree that Windows is a fickle beast.  Perhaps there are only a few
Windows users having these problems, lucky us.  Or maybe they just gave up
and selected another accounting package rather than banging their head

I may take a look at a possible HP printer issue, but I have never had any
similar problems in 3 years with any other Windows programs.  Wish we all
didn't have to spend so much time getting such basic features to work.
