I'm glad I was able to help a bit.
Clicking the middle (scroll) button also works for me, as does Insert and
I should have said that I'm running Windows XP SP1, although it has worked
with W2K (various SPs) and XP without SP1.
When I shut down XP SP1 I *do* have to kill the zombies (I can't remember
about the earlier OS's)!
