Go to: Control Panel|Windows Updates|Installed Updates|Microsoft Windows

Locate update KB2515325 and uninstall it.

I have not experienced any problems after uninstalling that update (or before it was installed automatically by Windows Update). Let me know how/if it works for you.

This was a new computer that I recently bought for my wife. Out of laziness, I had not yet disabled automatic updates. I have been keeping automatic updates disabled on all my systems for many years now, and that prevents this kind of hassles. I manually install updates only when I need to (for example, if I need to install a new piece of software that requires updates).

Many years ago, my research group had scheduled an important demo of our experimental software for an important customer. We checked out everything the day before, but, on demo day, our software did not work. After the failed demo, it took us a few hours to find out that, during the night, Sysadmin had updated our OS, and that was the cause of the problem. That day, we disconnected our lab computers from the corporate LAN, and, since then, I have worked very comfortably with automatic updates disabled. This most recent event has reminded me that I should continue to do so.

You sir, are THE MAN!

So sweet to be able to move stuff over the tastbar area which takes up 65 pixels of width on the right side of my screen (ie enough to miss the space when windows 7 screws it up like it does everything else).

Thank you!

Does anyone know how to get in touch with tweaker? It would be good if we can get hold of the source for this app so it can be compiled against the latest Explorer version.

Cheers,

Darren

Yeah Same here. I really need this too. I wasn't actually sure what the issue was at first but then I checked back here and found out we are currently SOL.

We should take a bunch of things like this from here and pack them all into a single control panel that can be installed and updated some day lol.

This application has proven very useful...

Hi there,

This application has proven very useful. Older games are no longer interrupted!!!



I do have a question however.

Is this code open source or the property of you Tweaker?

Thanks again for the great tutorial.
