PaintShop Pro X2 Stopped Painting - Can you Help?

    PSP X2 with the latest patches. For some reason, I an not able to get
    paint to show up on an image. I have reset the preferences to factory,
    reset the desktop to factory, cleared cache and all other parameters.

    When I select a paintbrush and a solid color, and try to paint on an
    image (existing or brand new, blank image), no paint shows up on the
    image. If I select the TEXT OPTION, text shows up fine.

    I have tried creating a new layer with no results.

    One strange thing - with the preferences set to default, when I click
    on the image to start to paint, the left (help) panel and the
    organizer tray at the bottom of the page move - they shift back a
    pixel or so as long as the mouse button is depressed, When I release,
    they return to the correct position.

    Please advise as soon as possible - thanks.

    Try Gimp if you can't fix it.

    Its free, open source, and comes with source code and is very powerful.
    Because the source code is free, programmers contribute code improvements
    and make it more powerful.

    Wouldn't have found these if I didn't search for 'paint' or 'graphics'
    or 'corel' on my usenet provider listings,
