    Annoying Ghost In Build 6956


    Right next to the Start button this "ghost" sits, sometimes large, sometimes small...probably related to whatever I have down there but the fact that it exists is annoying. I can't send feedback as I don't have an activated copy of this OS.

    I also suffer from ''the ghost in the machine''...lol on 6956 now & again ....

    sometimes when i minimize a window it will only let me move the cursor inside an 800x600 radius..?? i.e. i run 1680x1050 & everything looks fine but i cant use the full screen...

    the area highlighted is all i can use when it goes the way of the pear......lol

    I also accidentally activated the magnifier and couldn't see anything "through" it...LOL

    I think 6956 is a dud version personally.

    I also used Timernuke to avoid activation timeout and now I read elsewhere that it makes Windows "not genuine".....hmmm.

    Another annoying thing I noticed....
    When you right-click a file, depending on the file's name, you get extra SPACE on the left side of the context menu...

    Also, when you copy a file, you can't right-click a folder and choose Paste, you have to actually open the folder and PASTE inside it.

    I had seen the menu thingy a couple times, but hasn't happened since I changed the menus to open to the left of the pointer. Just tried the copy/ paste thing and I can't paste into a folder either.
