(2) I don't even know what "overlays" or "opengl" are, Shekh
(3) I have changed 3 things in Preferences>Display, as per your suggestion - if you wouldn't mind checking?
(4) I have never changed the pane layout, but several weeks ago (even a couple of months?) I stopped seeing 2 panes, but this didn't make any difference to performance so I carried on happily with one pane.
(5) Before I saw your reply, I reverted to an old version that I used in February which I know was OK - that wouldn't work. I then 'installed' VirtualDub-1.10.4-AMD64 just to try, that wouldn't work at all and a popup said "No audio compressor could be found... ... (source format tag: fffe)"
LATER... ... ...
Having 'installed' 43382 and made the changes you suggested, I have now extracted 10 clips from a 4-hour file, then opened a second copy of VD and extracted 3 clips from a 1-hour file, and all is working as it should be.
But now I realise I'm using the February version still - unless you say that I must update, I shall continue using this version for as long as it works.
I cannot imagine how changes were made to my precious VD2, as I certainly did not make them. I am so grateful for your help, I was in despair.
I sincerely hope I don't have to turn to you again

Nevermind, these are options I highlighted with red on screenshot. You have them disabled so it's ok.
You can stay with older version if is feels safe. What is the build number? You can see in Main menu->Help->About "Build 43xxx/Release ..."
I suspect it is either 43364 or 43385. I'm curious because the big difference between them is the update of x264 encoder. This could have some big impact.
Don't be afraid to ask anything, I'll reply what I can.
43382, the February one. It was an accident.
If I'm extracting clips to be joined up by another program, I use Fast Recompress. If I'm doing one clip to save for uploading to YouTube, I use x264 8 bit - H.264/MPEG-4 AVC codec to reduce the size, and also if filters are needed. (I started with the 10 bit but it wasn't friendly to other programs.)
Those two choices have been arrived at via trial & error over a period of time and I'm very satisfied.
If I start using the latest version of VD2 now, will I have to go thru and change the preferences again?
By running different versions of VD2 you cannot break the preferences. "x264 8 bit" also still uses same settings. Nothing to worry about here.
It is correct to use x264 for youtube.
43382 had mistake which ruined "copy frame to clipboard", if I had way I would replace all downloaded 43382 with 43385
