Sorry for the late reply.
heres some more info on my problem( noone else seems to have it any more)
As far as the log-out grey/brown screen, you know how when you log out it fades teh screen, then you get a pop-up window, mine just locks up and after about 5-10 mins I get the confirm log out window.
this does this on every log-in log out box EXcept for the one at the bottom right of the forums( the one above forum jump) it works fine there.
my ie browser locks up so I am not sure how to do a view source when I log out.
Ive tried 4 differnt pcs and havent had any problems except on this one.
Like you say I am sure its a missing code or typo and will start searching
on the login.php file can I pull it from my unzipped version of vb 3.06 on my hard drive and just replace it?
