    Arrow I Have SERIOUS Issues
    I have a number of problems with my operating system and can't seem to solve any of them.

    First of all, my Help Viewer is amazingly slow. So slow, in fact that it takes me upwards of twenty seconds to get from Apple-Q to the program quitting.

    Second, AppleWorks User Data, a folder I have a copy of in my AppleWorks Others folder (which in turn is a folder that I created to hold everything AppleWorks-related that I could find), keeps reappearing in my Documents folder no matter how many times I delete it. I only want one AppleWorks User Data folder, and I want it in my AppleWorks Others folder.

    Third, I have replaced the icons for some items on my computer with other, non-default non-system icons. Sometimes, though, the icons will spontaneously revert to their original and undesired default.

    Any suggestions?

    Appleworks will look for that folder everytime you start it, as that's the default position for it to save documents.

    If it isn't there, it will create it. I couldn't find a way to tell appleworks to use a different standard location...

    For your help viewer problem: try repairing disk permissions and then trashing the help viewer preference files. I'm not sure exactly where they are, but if you do a search on this forum for help viewer I'm sure you'll find a thread relating to help viewer problems that will tell you.
