cold boot no help: same message.

No changes that I did. This is out of park for me.

I guess I'm dead in the water for now.

change the shortcut that you click on to start TOAW so that it starts out as a "maximized" window.

Thanks, Larry! Not sure what happened, but several cold boots later ...
...and no changes on my end ...
Back in the Saddle! That was weird.

I guess Mr. Computer had to think about it for a while, finally responded.

EDIT: I hope this does not bode ill for Hard Drive health ...
I had that other HD crash in the middle of D21,
I guess I should start backing up files this time LoL
