what is BED? Anyway, it seems the program, when launched, closes the Workbench screen. This was common in earlier times to save some memory. I remember I used some program that prevented any program from closing the Workbench (DOpus) screen, but I can't remind the name now. Will try to find it as soon as I get home, probably tomorrow.
PS: I replied to your email regarding the problem when signing in to your account. Have you got it? If you want, I can reset your old password, maybe it helps.
