    What kind of message is this o_O
    It's an icon with a little yellow message in my system tray, that disappears after awhile.
    I'm not going to run this program. I'm afraid I will lose one or more icons or at least a not welcome re-arrangement of my icons.

    All my icons on the desktup are WORKING and I checked them one-by-one.
    It's not because I don't use them frequently , they have to be considered as UNUSED.
    Why is M$ trying to scare me, because I don't use winVISTA. Is that it ?
    I have already enough disturbances on my on-line snapshot due to my actual security setup. :mad:

    Oh that just gets rid of the icons you don't use much to give you less clutter.

    In that case it's a STUPID program :
    1. Icons not often used isn't the same as UNUSED and doesn't need this warning.
    2. Icons, which don't work anymore are UNUSED and need this warning.
    I hope this program is corrected in winVISTA. Pffft.

    you must have seen that before o_O it runs every 30 or 60 days doesn't it? i'm sure you can disable it in the registry so it won't run again.

    Thanks wilbertnl, I will try that for the moment. I will look into nLite, if it is possible to disable this stupid program forever in my customized "Windows Installation CD". If not possible, I add it in my installation files.

    @Iceni,
    You are right, I've seen this before, but today I had ENOUGH TIME to make a post about it.
    The problem wasn't big enough to spend time on it.

    Wilbertnl,
    OK Thanks. That's good, then I can terminate it FOREVER with nLite.
    Not the first time, that M$ creates useless functions (= ballast).
    Let users maintain icons on their desktop.

    Yes thanks. The problem is that I don't like to spend my time on little problems, I have bigger problems than killing M$'s useless programs. Those are unimportant details for me. These little things are for much later.
