Back to Internet Options, does the search settings on the general page show anything useful.

Are the bookmarks up to date? some sites irregularly change their page address. Its a problem I come across often with Shortlist as well as other sites.

MM, I am assuming that "filter key" means that you have some kind of shortcut program working in the background. If so then the "shift" key was locked on by that program as when you shift click on a link a new window opens. Then again the shift key hay have been mechanically stuck in the on position.

ML, tools - internet options - privacy tab - set to medium security (should be default).
If that doesn't work then from same place click on sites and enter the address manually.

I have a really long audio file that I want to burn to a CD so it plays on normal CD players and not just those with MP3 functionality. The file is 2 hours and 19 minutes but the normal CD only records upto 90 minutes. Is there anything I can use to compress it to that one CD? Or does anyone know of CDs I can b*y that will record that long file? :confused:

Or should I split the audio file into segments of 89 minutes? If so, anyone know of any good open source software that I can use to do this. I came across two (see below) but have no idea if it will kill my machine. (I'm always scared of things because everything always breaks in my hand! :( )

Hope someone can help! o/
