Christian, thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, Amaya was not in the 
Windows toolbar either, so 'maximise' was not possible.
I found a solution - I uninstalled Amaya normally, then I went and 
deleted the remnant directory in C:\Documents and 
Settings\<username>\amaya (for some reason the uninstall had not removed 
this). On re-installing, everyting was normal once again.

Great program - but it had me worried for a while. I think the problem 
is a buggy 'uninstall'
regards
kes
