Don't panic...I fixed it.learned a long time ago not to change things without backup!! But Still something strange,I was tryin' to change my port speed for my modem. The max listed in the properties is 15200, & I thought I might have found a way to increase it. (didn't though) But when I did change it my mouse quit working, well the cursor disappeared. Could this have anything to do with the Com ports used? There's no indication of conflicts but sumpin's up somewhere!
