Default "About" does nothing

Please Login to Remove!

For some reason, whenever I click Options>About, nothing happens. All the other choices on the Options menu work.

I recently tried to delete some unneccesary apps in order to free up memories; could I have inadvertantly done somthing that messed up the Options>About menu?

Help me, Obi Wan Kenobi; you're my only hope.

When you deleted the Help files, you lost the About function...

Also, if you deleted Voice Activated Dialing, the About screen doesn't work. Press Alt Right Shift H for a similar screen.

You are correct MM - it is VAD that causes About to fail - thanks!

If you want it back you'll have to reload your OS. From scratch.

I did delete the VAD. I don't need it, so I will use Motorcycle Mama's suggestion. Thanks Everyone!
