    Palandri,
    Hello... Have you tried to remove and reinstall (hover mouse over it and use the "X")
    Regards Fred

    Fred,
    yes, I've done that. When you reinstall, it comes with the same problem. Looks like some other software installed is inhibiting the calendar from working correctly. I tried a restauration point, but it didn't work also. I found some commands to be run on DOS, but no good results.

    Thanks. Sergio

    Hi, Fred. I found the solution on the page you sent me to. It was a problem of compatibility with IE9. After removing IE9, the calendar got back to normal.

    Thanks very much for your help.

    Fred, thanks for your help. The solution was in the page you linked me to.

    I unistalled IE9, and the calendar went back to normal. Compatibility.
