I really didn't like Xananews. There was probably a way to stop it
but every time I got headers it asked me questions, How many iirc &
did I want bodies too.
I've given up on version 1.93 and I'm migrating to version 4. I'll
have big questions about that in a new thread. That post is more
important to fixing things than this one. But I'm posting here to
apologize. See further down.

I apologize Ralph and Paul and Paul for including version 4 in my
first post. It was a complicated mistake***. When I decided the
problem might be caused by windows and reposted to this group and the
win10 group, I changed things but I didn't explicitly retract
including version 4, and I should have.
I did learn a lot about DEP however, and I assume that applies in a
lot of places.
*** I used to have 3 versions available on the desktop, two of 1.9
and one of 4, but when I went looking, there were only two icons and I
assumed one was version 4 and when it wouldn't start, I thought
version 4 wouldn't start. Later I saw that it was version 1.9 but it
used a data directory, AgentFF , for Firefox I think.
What could Firefox possibly have to do with Agen?. It's been less
than 3 years but I can't remember.
In addition, I foound a version of 1.93 I had called
agent_original.exe . It's the same length, 2,917,408 as agent193's
exe file but I can't remember what the difference is. It was a
change made with a hex editor. Does anyone know what people changed
in those days.
BTW, I had major problems finding the install program for 1.93 was
a32en193.exe. All there is ais an a, no agent like later versions.
Beffore I saw this anser, on the web I found a post by Ralph from 13
years ago that gave its name. After that I reinstalled it but that
