Default Fritz 8 bug (or not)

I was playing a rated game in Fritz 8 (using the 5.32 engine at a
lower rating) and had a clearly winning position. I switched over to
another program for a second and when I thought the computer was
taking an extra long time to move I noticed the clocks were stopped.
At firt I thought the program had froze but then I discovered by
accident that I could make a move for White (I was playing Black)....
so now all of a sudden i am 'playing' for the computer. So I figured
'OK' resign the game since I am now playing for the computer (I was up
a minor piece and could easily go to a winning end game) but I (Black)
still got posted with the loss.

My two questions a Has anyone seen this happen before and does
anyone know where Fritz stores player information so I can perhaps
scratch that last game (or delete everythign and start a new profile)?

Thanks.

Fritz hates losing.

Delete the file rating.dat
It'll erase all rating games results.

If you're using XP, it's in c:\documents and setting\yourprofile
\application data\chessbase\chessprogram8
