HI Pete, Well its working now, tnx. No more TVic problem! Keyboard working fb!
 This is what I did,  Ctrl Panel, Systems,Devise mgr., ports, found there were 2 # 2 lpt ports. So I changed one  to #1 and now ct works! and so does dx4win same lpt. and printer works also. 
73, tnx for help, Bernie/WO2N.>

  Bernie - maybe DX4win has grabbed control of LPT.  Try invoking CT without invoking DX4win.  Do you have any other TSR programs running that may use LPT?  My earlier suggestion about logging on as administrator allows you full control over all application programs that may be running without you knowing about it.  Did you check your Start up Items?
