    It didn't seem to work for me. It ran, but didn't function according to the directions... and the text in "about" gets really screwed up when you scroll. It actually got WinXP a little messed up... it restarted explorer.exe.
    Away.

    The program worked fine for me, except for the help screen, which was inaccurate and lacking in background erasure. But good job DataInjector.

    EDIT: An improvement would be to retain the Minimized/Maximised status of IE windows. After re-showing the windows they are always restored down, even if they were maximised before.
