Ever since I installed wordfast, I have had a problem with my Microsoft Outlook. When I open a window to send an email, and when I make a mistake typing, I use the backspace key to delete the character.

Unfortunately, since wordfast has been installed, it automatically wants to close my window when I use the backspace key.

This only happens in Microsoft Outlook, and after wordfast was installed. I deleted all the wordfast files to do a check (and make sure it wasn't a virus or something - I ran two scans), and when there weren't anymore wordfast files in my computer, I did not have the problem with Outlook.

I am planning to use Wordfast long term, so hope someone can help me with this.

Thanks! May 14, 2007

Thanks, John. I will do that. I have been looking in the wrong manual, I was looking for a solution in the Training Manual. What a newbie I am.
