When I turn on PSP8 the stander tool bar is missing. The way to regain it to to go to view/options and reset. The software folk simply say to remdy this is to delete and reinstall . Thats OK on pain. But why does it keep on happening? Is it perhaps that upgrading from Win95/8 to NTFS system is not always as good as it could be? Or is there another underlaying casue?
Disappearing toolbars was always a problem with earlier versions of PSP, but this is the first I've heard of it since version 4. The cure then I recall was to delete all registry entries relating to toolbars, and restart the program.
This is nothing to do with ntfs. I run PSP 8 and 9 on two ntfs machines without problem. There must be some other underlying problem, as you suggest.
