help.....I foolisly shut down my computer without going offline first and when I came back from getting a coffee having not heard the windows shutdown noise I looked and found windows updating itself...I sighed and let it and hoped for the best. Well everything else works fine, but TG2TP has lost all it's icons and is un usable except to generate a terrain and mouse navigate. It freaked me so much that I forgot to check the network view but the dialogues accessed from the network view are similarily missing both words, tho they have some, and icons/buttons, ie: stay open etc. any idea why this is happening?...it's not my main terragen computer so it's not really urgent for me ...it's just my e machine, but there may be folks out there who don't have a dedicated net box so this may be a concern for them.

Bobby, what Windows theme are you using (if any)? Try switching to or from "Classic" theme and back.

Was using Classic...switched to XP and everything is back...think it'll hold if I now revert to classic?

Yes, it should hold if you switch back to classic. I believe this sort of problem has been improved in newer (alpha) releases too.

I prefer Classic too, but I am forced to suffer under Vista. ;)
