I did a deep virus clean with Norton and lost all recipes. Now when I go to create new recipe nothing comes up in the field, like my grains, hops etc. And I lost all my prior brews except gravity, date, and name, no ingredients come up in that dialog box....any ideas?

Go to the beersmith website and check the forums. I had the same problem and had to delete some file.

That's happened to me a few times. Was it the "newopts14.opt" file in the Compatibility Files folder?
