    Time to uninstall it then, and try something else.

    Yes, I will do that again tomorrow (it's past my bed-time.)

    Since no one else mentioned your avatar, I will note that it is flashing SOS in Morse code.

    Yes, I use it on other forums too. For your interest: The international distress signal isn't, never was, and was never meant to be, "sos" or any other combination of letters or digits. It is a single Morse character, just as any letter, digit or punctuation character.

    Brink, I have again uninstalled Paint Shop Pro and re-installed it via the right click on its exe file etc. No difference.

    I will look to see if any other forum looks promising.

    I am aware of the distinction. I was an Aircraft Radio Operator in WW2 and the Korean War and, on two occasions, had to use the signal. When written, the SOS is overscored indicating it is to be sent as a single character. I have also been an Amateur Radio Operator for 55 years and exclusively use Morse Code in my communications.

    Good for you.

    I was a Radio Officer in the Merchant Navy. Have a British amateur licence and a VP8 one.

    Sorry to hijack the thread, but I've been following this thread to see if it was ever resolved.

    I too am an old morse code radio operator, from the US Air Force and was an instructor in the Radio Operator school at Keesler AFB, Mississippi.
    I'm also an ex-ham radio operator. I've had several call signs including ZD8JES when I worked at the tracking stations on Ascension Island.

    I'm the one that should apologize for hijacking, fireberd! And, BTW, I also was Instructor at Scott Field, Illinois for a while where I had gone for Radio Operator Mechanics school in mid-forties.

    No apologies necessary (except perhaps to any moderators.)

    There are obviously thousands of people who have similar experience and it is inevitable that some will be members/contributors to many forums.

    Except for a special Radio section on a Merchant Navy forum I know of no other site which caters for ex professional operators.
    I'm sure that many of us would have interesting/amusing anecdotes to share.

    After uninstalling again, I ran JV16's Software and leftovers removal tool. I found two PSP items which I removed.
    Installed it again with no deference to compatibility or anything else - just a straight installation.

    It now works correctly

    Thank you for all the suggestions.
