Had the same problem with IE8 and another problem caused by VISTA. When using the Browse button I could not find the txt file. This is because this file is designated as a hidden file and so you need to change the view options in VISTA to allow you to see the file. To do this you need to take the following steps:
Click Start
Click My Computer
Click Organize
Click Folder and Search Options
Click View tab
Ensure that button marked Show Hidden Files and Folders is on
You may also want to ensure that entry for hide extensions for known file types is not ticked

Hope this helps

Thanks for posting that valuable information Colin, and it was nice to chat to you yesterday.
I have to say, new customers have been very understanding in this matter - a huge relief.

I feel embarrassed, even though the problem is not of my making (mercifully).

I will use your step by step instructions in documentation. It will save me a lot of grief.
Most of the chat on the forum is Gardening related, but there will be lots of interest for you and other Bank Genie users soon.
