Edit: Is it supposed to deselect the last open window and when you move the cursor it goes back? I was hoping it would open the window you hover over. Also, why did my wallpaper disappear when I logged back in?
i would take a wild guess and say that hexadecimal value of 0 and decimal value of 0 are interchangeable.
as to why we have to change it then, i dunno.

if you want to open the window you hover over, try option 1.
and, as to why your wallpaper disappeared, i haven't the slightest idea

mine was 0 already as well, actually.

You can still use MS Tweak UI in Win7 to set X-Mouse settings. Grab the .exe from a XP install and use XP SP2 compatability mode. Works for me.

Found a bit of a problem with option 3, when you click on volume or the customise button in the system tray, the window vanishes every time you try to move to it, so if anyone know a fix for that it would be much appreciated.

yes, i noticed that as well with the right-click menu on the pinned programs on the taskbar.

If you set ActiveWndTrkTimeout to decimal 150 or so, it sets a delay that allows enough time to reach past that little gap.

Yeah I tried a whole heap of different values but it didn't make a difference.
