I saw another posting on this site where the person had the same problem with the "Notes" section. He said he closed all of the background programs and it took care of his problem. I did the same and it worked. I have Win98 and the only two programs I had open was Explorer and Systray. I subsequently went to the menu that controls start up programs. I didn't find exactly which one it was ( I could if I wanted to restart my computer about 10 more times).This was effecting my whole system. Keeping my fingers crossed that took care of the problem. I really like the Generations 5.2 program and didn't want to switch to another. Maybe this will help you.
