>Disappearing Data is usually caused by conflicting software such as OCR, which if disabled or uninstalled usually solves the problem!
No, I am not running ANY OCR software. As stated earlier, I shut down ALL startup programs, and STILL had the disappearing data problem on my Vista laptop. I've given up trying to use the software on this PC. It works ok on my older desktop running XP, it's just a bit less convenient.
