    I don't know about this toolbar so I can't help you this time. Sorry.  



    NOW what did you do ? Dust off those Britannica volumes and do it the old fashioned way.

    I used to have alot tool bar it annoyed me when it was here ,now that its gone I celebrate its demise .All computer people who participate in change should listen closely here . I hate change and things that dont work .I expect your site to work and remain unchanged . I like seeing the same page the same way every time I go some where .When you change, kiss my backside I am gone never coming back . Who ever has the idea to change things that work and muck them up can just eat my shorts . Sorry ,for the bitching ,just too many changes lately . Things work until they dont, then they are gone that seems to be the way this computer garbage works ..Made up words ,total loss of language  skills ,made up syntax,shortened or abbreviated words until all is gibberish , computer speak . This is the work of idiots .Just be glad its gone and move on .

    I agree with your tirade BUT I want a dictionary plus thesaurus on my computor so I , hopefully avoid the very things you speak of.

    I just did a Goggle search : Free Dictionary and Thesaurus down loads  there's a whole bunch of stuff there for windows xp maybe you could take a look and see if some of this stuff will work for you . I have spell check so that's automatic for me . Good luck with this ,I  always enjoy your words and like your refreshing outlook very much .                Bill

    True ,very true ! I found the Alot tool bar invasive and annoying so I was glad to see it go . I dont know what system you are using,for me when I want something like this I go to Linux soft ware center . Perhaps you have something available like that for you .I resort to www.makeuseof.com  also www.wonderhowto.com  I have had at least10  sites frequently used just tank in the last week. Total change of the page and access procedure ,the familiar is gone and confusing garbage takes it place . My patience is gone I really do despise this computer so when they change sites and pages they can just count me out ,am done . Have you  tried reinstalling the Alot bar if it works for you and you like it ? Ill look into some alternatives and get back to you .            Bill
