I wouldn't think so, not since you must uninstall before doing a 
reinstall... but I sure don't know about all that for sure.

I recall that trick to disable themes for whatever reason (been so long 
ago!) but hadn't thought to try it. Doing so now only managed to make it 
possible to Stop the render and close the program normally, which I guess 
means something. No change about the Pause locking up permanently.
I noticed the timer and pixel count continues until stopped, and the menu 
bar blinks very slowly.
Compatibility changed to XP (SP2) and disabled themes only makes for a 
different appearance of the toolbar, unfortunately not how the Pause works 
so that won't help me. Will be a curious thing if it happens with mine and 
not other people.

Thanks for the suggestion nonetheless.

Bob
