LKGC are the system settings used when the OS last loaded successfully.
IF one restarts the system *more* than THREE times, then LKGC will no
longer be able to load.
'restore a previous registry' is *not* the same and can be any previous
backup of the registry; whether it actually loads the OS or not depends
on the integrity of the backed up registry.
Why do you ask ?
I received a spam message the other day and it contained some very
strange things. It was the usual HTML crap "I sent you an email a few
days ago because you now qualify for a new mor tgage.
You could get a $300,000 for as little as $700 a month!
credit is no pr oblem, you can pull cash out or ref inance." It also
had the usual random characters in the subject line.
The strange thing was that some text(see below ) was inserted below
the message in a 2.5 pt font in a almost invisible light blue color.
The text was really bizarre, unrelated words.

I'm having problems getting the spam filters to work properly in Outlook
2003. I have multiple e-mail accounts set up in Outlook with e-mail being
redirected to folders with the Rules/Alerts command. The problem is that the
Rules seem to be redirecting e-mail to folders after the spam filter does
its thing. So, nothing is being filtered as spam (even though I have mail
domains listed as Blocked Senders).
I would like to get this working feature working properly. The alternative
is switching to Thunderbird which I don't want to do.
Any help would be appreciated.

the area of each bar (or column) would give total Exports.

I currently use www.spamcop.net to do this, but this is not practical for

groupname.visible = true and groupname.visible=false).
This would make disappear/appear a whole lot of controls without having to
