    I saw this thread in the latest Windows Secrets and thought I'd lay this matter to rest by giving an explanation of what's happening here.

    Also, websites have the ability to override your choices for link colours, including visited links, and sometimes they'll do that. If it only happens on some websites but not others, this'll be why.

    Foxit should not need admin permission to run, at all. If it does, then something is very wrong. (Admin permission should only be given to programs that actually require it to do their job.)

    The thing which this brings to mind for me is that these programs - calculator, email and Computer - are all programs that are *very* common for the shortcut keys on the keyboard to run. Do you by...

    I found out what was wrong! I had been putting the custom cursors on my desktop, and apparently it doesn't like that. (I'm guessing it also wouldn't like it if they were in "My Documents".) Making a...

    Well, the weird thing is that the other mouse cursors aren't affected; my normal mouse cursor, as well as the other cursors, are still used just fine. It's just the text caret that isn't...

    royw: You're probably clicking on the wrong one. If you have hidden files turned on, then when you go to C:\Users\Yourname, you'll see *two* items called "My Documents". One of them is a hidden...

    I have a laptop, and I use a Logitech G5 laser mouse. I just tried downloading the newest SetPoint drivers and rebooting, but it made no difference. :(

    Mouse cursors resetting on bootup?

    Hi all,

    I'm having a weird issue with the mouse cursors on my Windows 7 system. I use the "Windows Standard (extra large)" scheme, with two custom cursors for "Precision Select" (cross) and "Text...

    Hi ldb,

    You actually have the opposite problem to the one I posted about! In this case you probably want to force DPI Virtualization *on* rather than force it *off*, which is what the method...

    Great, thanks! I'll remember this for future use - I worked around the problem myself by using Microsoft's mt.exe tool to modify the manifest of the EXE and add the appropriate tags to declare it...

    RetiredGeek: I think Merf was specifically looking to avoid that solution, given the last paragraph in their post:

    I don't have a solution myself, though. It seems to me that if this sort of thing...
  14. Disabling DPI Virtualization for 64-bit apps?

    Hi,

    I run Windows 7 at 120 DPI (125%) and I appreciate the DPI Virtualization feature that it gives you if you have the "Use Windows XP style DPI scaling" box unticked, because a lot of apps don't...

    Hi all,

    I was patching my Windows 7 box today and after I rebooted, the computer was *really* slow. As an example, the first time I booted up after patching, it was stuck at the pulsating Windows...

    If you didn't get *any* Windows CDs with your computer, then it's likely that your computer will have a "recovery partition" on it instead, which you should be able to use to reinstall - but the...

    Thanks for the reply!

    The PS/2 versions look interesting. I like how it would be able to work with any PS/2 keyboard; that'll make some things a bit easier. I don't see anything on how to program...
