    Turn off folder pane tooltips

    In Explorer on the left side where the folder tree is, can the tooltips that pop up when the folder name is too long to fit in the folder pane be turned off? The reg edits to disable tooltips do not affect those tooltips.

    Help with minidump please

    Update: I tested my memory and the two sticks checked okay. I did see when I took out one of the sticks that there was a tiny piece of trash in the clip under one of the sticks so I pulled both sticks and blew out the tracks. I hadn't taken out the sticks before. My old game played a little...

    Help with minidump please

    As much as I would like to get a new card, as I had said above, with being unemployed even $40 is not an option for now. I can only maybe try to save up a few dollars at a time and then try to get one. Thanks for the link. I'll bookmark it.

    Help with minidump please

    I'm more confident now about running the test. Thank you and Triple6 for helping me out. Yeah, the requirements for the online game is certainly out of my park for sure. I new I couldn't run that. I'm actually playing Uru-Ages Beyond Myst from my pc. Not on-line. So the requirements are not as...

    Help with minidump please

    Well...the fan isn't running. I took it out and the little plastic fan is loose in the fan housing. It's not seated in the base of the fan housing. I took the top of the housing off and pushed it back down and reseated it, but after awhile it comes loose again. Looks like I won't be playing my...

    Help with minidump please

    Yeah, I downloaded the usb version. I don't really understand how to use though. The card has a fan and it sounds like it's running but it could be one of the other fans. The pc has three fans in it. I checked Everest and Speccy and they both show 48°C when playing the game.

    Help with minidump please

    It's okay. Thanks for trying to help me out jazz3000. I appreciate it. What I have found so far is that I only get the crash when I try to play an old Ubisoft game. I tried all of the drivers that are recommended for my FX5500 and all of them after 56.72 crash or lock up playing the game. I...

    Help with minidump please

    Okay. I'll try to do that. My cd-rom is not working so I downloaded the usb installer. Do you have a link on how to run memtest from a thumb drive for dummies. I've never tried to do something like this before.

    Solved: End of search popup with text files

    There's a big thread over at Avast about system restore if anyone reading this thread has had the same problem I did. I'm using XP Home SP3. Avast 5 prevents System Restore of Win 7 from completing?

    Solved: End of search popup with text files

    Well darn. I didn't even think about looking at Flo's site and F&Q's. Thanks Squashman. I'll remember to do that next time if I happen to have another problem with Notepad2. I've been using it for a long time without any issues other than this one which was my fault to begin with. How to...

    Solved: End of search popup with text files

    I'm using Notepad2 from the menu File>Find Next. I did a system restore from yesterday and got it back. Avast 5 didn't like me doing the restore looks like. When the pc came back up, the only thing I had was the desktop. No graphics, no task bar, nothing. The pc was locked up. I powered...

    Solved: End of search popup with text files

    When doing a search in a text file, for example, I used to get a popup showing something like "reached end of file" or something like that. It has a check box to not display that popup again which I ticked and shouldn't have. I'd like to get that popup back if it's possible.
