Hello,

....Well I didnt install any scenery files
Maybe you installed some scenery files and was unaware of the fact.Some paywares aircraft (and at less extend .. freewares aircrafts) contain some other files as flight files and scenery(ies) ... and also sometime old version of FSUIPC ! (auto-install)So, it's can be this.Also check the creation and modification dates of the scenery.cfg and FS9.cfg !Anyways .. the show phenomena is not the act of a ghost in your computer :)Regards.bye.gif

Don't know why your joystick commands were knocked out of whack, but the FS update was due to the Daylight Saving Time change.

If you are running XP (not sure if Vista) all you have to do is unplug joystick (USB, I hope) wait 20 seconds, then plug it back in. You might hear a 'bong' sound on both operations-ignore them. It should all be automatic. Unless you have some sort of profiles to set up, then that would require the joystick software, but your stick should be good to go now. XP will automatically install the drivers for your joystick. Much better drivers than any found on joy CD (believe me). Don't forget to do calibration(s). One withing XP and one within FS9. Hope this helps.Chuck BNapamule
