I also see this problem on my Mac OSX powerbook arrangement. I have just been ignoring it, but if there is a solution, it would be nice to hear.

I too am seeing this behaviour. Not that it really matters, but Mike please post the solution if you find one!
Also, after I click on "-update all-" and find there was no need, "click here to return to the previous screen" doesn't (in the viewer window). ditto.
I work in a networked environment w/o install privileges on our PCs, so "start again", although possible, isn't entirely simple, and it's probably not worth bothering the IT guys just for this. Unless it's symptomatic of something worse, of course.

As you are in the USA, I would suggest contacting
StataCorp technical support tomorrow.

An alternative is to uninstall and start again.
That should be pretty fast.
