Yes, good a good enough idea for occasional use. It's people in business that suffer the most i think,
plus it's just so short sighted and non-nonsensical to remove a viable function.
And why in Hades did MS keep the ability to random arrange the desktop and disable it in folders ?
The excuse is that it uses more memory - P weak excuse.
I still reckon MS should stay focused on attempting
to make a universally customisable OS.
@Slayer - You've been around a while so you probably know all the following, but....
I guess you've monitored your gpu/cpu temps. I would normally think that a consistent crash after running a game
that is stressing components after a period of half and hour or more would be due to temps getting too high.
Are you having the same issue both on and off line ?
Have you tried running the game in Clean Boot mode ( http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135
) to determine is something hogging resources in the background ?
When there is a BSOD that refers to the graphics drivers it can be either the drivers, or the gpu,
sometimes even a RAM fault if the problem happens when using a graphics intensive application.
Have you tried making the new registry key ?
These articles are where I found out about the Time out Delay error. They probably also apply to ATI -http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=65161http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=100800&hl=nvlddmk
While you said you have a new clean install of everything this does not always mean there was not some corruption with the install of the drivers.
You aren't using Beta drivers are you ?
I just noticed ur_noobie's comment on the 280.26 drivers. I'm still on the 275.33.
I was hoping Marhsmallow would come back with something constructive - Maybe later....
