Is Your PC Secure On The Internet?


Current Tip
There seems to be a bug in the Microsoft Tab Control 6.0 (SP4).  If you use nested tabs (one tab control inside another) you'll be unable to END the project during FORM_LOAD.

A workaround is to use UNLOAD ME from FROM_LOAD.  Then place END in FORM_UNLOAD.
