As a long-time PAF user, I hate to give it up, but I'm becoming increasingly frustrated with a recurring problem. I often want to check something in PAF while I'm responding to e-mail. On several occasions, when I go back to the message I'm composing after toggling out of PAF (running on a Windows 95/DOS platform), I'll hit the "e" key or another key and some function will open that I don't want. It's as if the keyboard has been re-mapped or something. All I can do is use the mouse to save the message, get off the 'Net, and reboot. I'm new to this forum, so if this has come up before, let me know and I'll try searching the old messages. Otherwise, any and all advice will be appreciated.
