  1. epp_b,Have you tried logging on to your accounts using separate instances of IEXPLORE.EXE? I don't have a way to test the idea but it might work.
  2. I've had some apps that override your preferences at startup. Worse yet, they have no option to always hide the icon. Very bad form.
  3. bruce,Out of curiosity i googled on >png transparency< and found the following excerpt here.
  4. ibe98765,From any page, click on "Members" in the upper right of the page. That'll take you to the Member List where you can sort the list any number of ways using the choices in the pick lists. For example, to show the top 50 posters, choose "Search All Available" Showing "All Members" by "Total Posts" in "Descending Order" with "50" results per page. You are 22nd on the list.Some other stats--Of 1698 members listed:45 have 100 or more posts103 have 25 or more posts162 have 10 or more posts489 have 2 or more postsabout 780 have at least 1 postEdited to add-- these numbers are pretty consistent with numbers I see at many different forums, large and small. Especially the last one; about 60% of memberships never post.
  5. That's because those forums are dominated by a clique of about a dozen or so long time members that aren't very tolerant/accepting of newcomers. And they're heavy handed with moderation as well. I'm a paid lifetime member of nonags plus but I haven't posted there in over a year.
  6. IrfanView should do the trick. Sometimes you can crop the image enough to reduce file size. You can change the dimensions to reduce file size and retain quality or you can resample the image and maybe sacrifice a little quality. If it's a Windows Bitmap (.bmp) file you can simply save as a .jpg file and reduce file size a ton.If you want, you can send it to me as an attachment to an email and I'll play around with it. Then I'll tell you what I did for the best result.

    BSOD

    I just got my first BSOD after having run Win XP Home relatively trouble free for nearly 2 years. It occured while running the Defrag utility; it was about 30% finished. All apps and unnecessary processes including AV and firewall were closed before I started.I jotted down this info from the BSOD:STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x00000034, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0xF84A18F0)IdeChnDr.sys -Address F84A18F0Base at F849C000Date Stamp 3d99eac3Does anyone have any ideas?TIA,--Jeff
  8. System Restore is available in Win XP Home. I've used it several times with no problems.
  9. I'm aware of that and did not intend to imply otherwise.
  10. Cool, Ben. I d/l'd it and I'll check it out later. Thanks.
  11. Hat's off to you, TR, for taking the time to review the leaked Longhorn build and for posting the screenshots. Very interesting. Thanks.
  12. Scot,One thing to include in the Sticky FAQ: Please give your topic a descriptive title.Many people (especially the ones who can help the most) on forums like this simply refuse to open topics that say, "Need help", "Problem", "Heeeelllpppp!!", "hlp plz", etc.
  13. Left untreated, CTS can cause permanent damage to the nerve and atrophy of the muscle that controls the thumb.
