Windows 7: Malwarebytes - NoActiveDesktopChanges

Just like I showed in my 2 screen shots - it is a normal explorer type window, and the column widths can be individually changed. SqdnGuns also marked the same place where you place your mouse in order to change the column widths.

All that is present but without the large space seen stretching out across the screen if you look a little closer! Watch!

Again - go to *exactly* where both Sqd and I circled - at the very top right next to the word *Type*, and move the move until it hovers over that faint vertical line to the left of the word type - that is your column border, and it is where you widen or narrow your columns. You need to widen the Name column.

BTW, this is standard Windows control behavior since the file manager was introduced in Windows 3.x....

you see the first picture, how the two NoDesktop entries are partially covered up?

Click and drag the spacer seperator between Name and Type at the top, which the little black double arrow will appear when you hover over the top spacer.

Then it will look like this, with the full names of the entries showing.

That's simply a matter of setting the view.



For not viewing full screen that can pose a problem real fast.

Not really. There's no reason to change the column to be that large. It just needs to be enough so that you can read everything in it.

You don't need to double click it - as you can see in my screen shots, I only move the column just wide enough to show what was being displayed in the screen, and that is *far* from my 1680 x 1050 resolution.

My point in all of this was that initially all you had to do was widen the column just a bit and you'd have seen that those were in fact 2 different keys. Same with file names if you go looking in a directory in Windows Explorer....

Well when simply bringing the cursor up tp the "type" or "data" catagory heading seen on the bar you can easily spread each column out further or tuck it in closer without a need to go upto the view item and bring out the vertical indicator line. For a fast edit while the regedit window is minimized that comes in handy to have all items in view.

The problem here is I may have several things going at the same time where things need to be compacted down a little bit in order to fit into the desktop. busy busy busy!

I presently have the free version of Malwarebyes installed and run a full scan about once a month. The reason I don't run it more often is that it takes about 2 hours for the full scan on just one of my hard drives. Double that if I have both hard drives connected. My question is: I have...

MSE vs Malwarebytes
I see that people often recommend doing a full scan with MBA. Is MBA better than MSE (talking about the full scans). If so, how much better?
