I can't imagine how your settings could have gotten foobared enough to
cause that behavior. However, they are stored in the registry at
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Jimmy Maher\Filfre. Just delete that key
with RegEdit for a clean slate.

That COULD concievably be a problem. With such an old OS, you might not
have the latest (version 3.0) RichEdit libraries. If it still doesn't
work for you, see if you can find the latest on Microsoft's site.
Or, better yet, just let me know and I can send you the DLL. I believe
it's only ~300K, and if you don't want to mess with your computer's
delicate balance for the sake of my buggy beta interpreter you can just
drop it in the same directory as Filfre. Filfre will find it there.
I actually thought about including it with Filfre, but decided that
(firstly) the vast majority would already have it and (secondly and more
importantly) distributing it in that fashion is probably illegal... even
though Microsoft gives it away for free.
