    didn't see a reply to my post I just did....

    see the reply message a few post down "Qhosts Clean-up
    Tool (Brown U) -- &"

    I just tried and it fixed my issues.

    I had been using the most recent clean up tools form other
    sources with no luck.


    let me know if the Brown U software works for you!
