David, Might I do the re-installation? I was thinking about it but I didn't; just to avoid getting immerse in a potential change of password procedure. Currently, I am working under Windows XP SP2, and when I upgraded to Mathematica 5.0, I was under XP SP1 (The same OS for Microsoft, but who knows if the same environment for Wolfram). I feared this change could affect the Math ID and then the password, so I didn't. -----Original Message----- From: David Bailey [mailto:dave at Remove_Thisdbailey.co.uk] To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net Subject: [mg56475] [mg56448] Re: Mathematica 5.0 notebooks icon gone.
