Hi, I have a recurring problem. In ArcMap 9.3, no features are selected when I try to use the Select Features tool. The shapefile is, in fact, enabled in the Set Selectable Layers dialog. If I open the attribute table and select a feature there, the feature becomes selected in the map display. I have tried restarting ArcMap, starting from a blank document, different shapefiles, restarting the  computer.  I even deleted the Application Data\ESRI folder in my Windows user profile, but the issue does not go away.
