Same here (Windows XP)

Don't think you can do it like that...

Sorry to chuck a spanner in the works, but I've just tried it on my XP setup and it works fine. I use the classic menu as the teletubbies XP one gets up my nose.

Thanks for your contributions, but picked up an earlier thread and it seems like its on going. Been running WinXP since week 1 even the beta before launch and I am most impressed with this O/S been there since 95,98&SE,ME,2000, & XP and is head & shoulders above the rest. 2 weeks ago went to M/soft w/site for some updates done the scan and was informed that I needed 28 critical updates and that SP1 would be a good idea !!, anyway done the necessary and voila s/cuts not available (they have been since XP launched) so methinks it is linked. Went to website 11/09/03
and M/soft recommend waiting for the fix in the the next support pack SP2 do you think. Cheers
