it has been a while since the last time something went wrong with my laptop, but it's back on and I need your help on this one.
If you're not familiar with Xfire real-time messenger, you can check it out here: Xfire - Gaming Simplified
It's really a simple and easy communication tool to use, especially favorite in gaming communities.
I recently dealt with an issue concerning BS Player and it forced me to install and uninstall a lot of codecs, sometime in the process, it messed up something with my Xfire settings. There was also this huge crash there once, it crippled and disabled all my display settings, e.g. folders and their appearance, such as thumbnails, sorted either by type or name or even some programs associated with certain file types, such as .zip - GONE! - no idea, where this came from, but I believe it crashed and damaged some registry values and resetted some settings to the default.
This problem is very similar to the outline
x show content while dragging
issue. It's however only happening, when resizing either the whole messenger (only a very thin outline, so it can be tolerated..) and resizing chat-window, there appears exactly the same thick outline, as it though, it would be dragged, but it shouldn't show that! Because outline was disabled, when dragging the whole window, it's all right, no outline, but when you want to make it smaller or bigger, it shows and it looks awful. Maybe some registry went wrong or I don't know.
I would appreciate a lot, if someone could look at the Xfire (install it?, besides that, we we would be only guessing here), perhaps tell me, if it's happening for him as well (from what I can tell, I asked a couple of people, they got it too, but they wouldn't care, even if their desktop turned all pink with purple dots). I'm pretty sure, it has something to do with the outline / show content while dragging thing, but how to make Xfire program believe that resizing is not dragging and most importantly that it is turned OFF! Can someone write a special registry for Xfire? I tried some Xfire support, but they are rather incompetent, plus their support has like "0 care" / "get the f*ck out of here" attitude, they got some 20,000,000 users, so why care, if there's no competition, right?
I will certainly appreciate some help, even from someone who is willing to install that software (Xfire), take a look at it, try to analyze the problem and provide some worthy solution.
I should also add, this applies to all skins and Xfire themes and I'm 100% positive that it can be removed even naturally and I'm quite sure, the window content fixed this thing the last time or it can be some bug in xfire.exe itself, because when it is downloading updates, it's simply downloading the whole new .exe
Well, like I said, my problems are never main-stream, after all, if they were, I'd not go to this forum.
I will appreciate any suggestion, but for non-sevenforums staff, guys please, I know, you sometimes mean well, but suggesting stuff like stop using the program aren't really helping.
Thanks a lot in advance.
