Grateful for any help.....
In addition to what Claire said, which is great info. (link), I'll add that in Thunderbird, if you click Tools > Account Settings, you'll see all the different e-mail accounts. I have multiple e-mail accounts myself and all are listed there.

Talk about odd timing - while in the middle of typing this post, I just got a prompt from Firefox that a patch is available.

Besides the ones already mentioned...

MoveOnBoot it gets rid of files you can't get rid of normally, like that danged thumbs.db that windows likes to add to EVERY picture folder you have and won't let you delete.
CROA (http://davidcrowell.com/archive/2007/03/11/Croa.aspx - broken link) (Clear Read Only Attributes) To reset the read only files that windows has a bad habit of setting as read only.
is an easy-to-use, fast and tiny utility designed especially to fit the needs of Webmasters and Designers. Its a colour picker that includes a mouse tracker. Run it, simply point to a colour and it will tell you the hex, RGB, HTML, CMYK and HSV values of that colour. You can then use these values to reproduce the selected colour in your favorite programs. Pixie will also show the current x y position of your mouse pointer. Its the only tool you'll need for working with colours.
Colorbox (http://www.kobayashi.com/colorbox.html - broken link)
Colorbox is a simple program that lets you generate HTML <BODY> tags using sliders or the Windows color dialog. Once you've selected your colors, simply click on the Copy button to copy the <BODY> tag to the Windows clipboard.
Tweak UI I love the autologon feature.
A complete Web Authoring System for Linux Desktop, Microsoft Windows and Macintosh users to rival programs like FrontPage and Dreamweaver. Nvu (pronounced N-view, for a "new view") makes managing a web site a snap. Now anyone can create web pages and manage a website with no technical expertise or knowledge of HTML.
EVEREST Home Edition is a freeware system information, system diagnostics and benchmarking solution for home PC users, based on the award-winning EVEREST Technology. It offers the world's most accurate system information and diagnostics capabilities, including online features, memory benchmarks, hardware monitoring, and low-level hardware information.
Don't know how long EVEREST will remain available. I've had a copy of this on my hard drive for 3 years now. Since just before they discontinued support.

There's more but that's all I can think of right off hand. Liz

I went to that site, did a search for 3-D solar system, and when I clicked on the link for what I thought was a download, my computer was attacked. Watch out! I'm not going back there again.
