Comments extension disappear

I have a problem with the comments extension disappearing whenever I install a new extension. A few months ago I installed a spam filter and the comments ext vanished. Tried several ways to get it back but had to re-install everything. After re-installing BE the new ext AND comments ext worked fine.

Last week I installed the BE Gallery (http://www.skylark-creative.com/blog/page/BEgallery-extension-for-BlogEnginenet.aspx) and the comments ext disapperared into thin air AGAIN! Is there something I need to do before installing to prevent this from happening or is there a limit to the number of extensions one is allowed to have?

I am not a comuter geek/wiz, so I am very carefully following any instructions when I install stuff. I always read through the instructions first, and if I don't understand everything I rather find one with easier instructions than try and fail.

Please help. Thanks!

Which version of BE are you using?  And what Comments extension are you referring to?  Do you mean this Commentor add-on that you could use in older version of BE such as 1.5 before a real Comments mgmt system was added in BE 1.6?

I just read through my post and noticed I   wasn't clear. It's not the actual comment ext that goes away, but the control to edit, approve or delete comments. The tab disappears in the admin section so that the only way to do any of these is to go to every single post I made and check comments and approve or delete from there.

Before I installed the gallery ext I could go to the comments tab in administration and select multiple comments simultaneously.

I am using BE 1.6.1.0 - here http://fumei.se/blogg/
