    Hi to all -

    Ever heard of an instance where SpywareGuard ver. 2.01.001 affects the "tooltips" when it is running? That is, when SpywareGuard is present in Systray, the tool tips (clock date, icon "names", taskbar minimized windows
    names, resource meter %'s, etc.) doesn't work. When I exit SG and close it from running and being in the Systray, the "tooltip" functions properly again. Dell W98/SE, if that is of any significance.

    Thanks,
    CaptainPicky

    Thanks LowWaterMark,

    Obviously my first -aside from the Test Forum- post to this Help Group. Although I have experience in MS newsgroups, it does not show by my having posted twice the same question here within minutes of each other, and the lack of doing an adequate search in this group.

    I wish to thank you for directing me to the thread in question, and for graciously doing so without any prejudice.

    Regards,
    CaptainPicky ;)

    My tooltips have been dropping our for ages, soon as I disable spyware guard and refresh my desktop tooltips work.

    Odd.
