This might be more of a GDI question, but since I'm in MFC, I'll ask:
Would BitBlt-ing to the screen repeatedly tend to lock up a program, after
alt+tabbing to another application? If so, why? This seems to be happening
to me, and I want to get to the bottom of the problem. What I have is
either a fade loop or a screen-size redraw, both based on a timer and
bitblt. Quite often, after I leave the program to go to another app, I
cannot return and must "end task".

news:%23YFL5Ks%23F...Desktop Alert Locks Computer
I am seeing a little quirk on some of my desktops. It only happens
occasionally, but it happens to different models of PC. Not all the
time, but once in awhile, I have users that complain of their PC
freezing. The only remedy is to do a hard reboot. I have noticed in
these instances, that the desktop mail alert ( the preview that pops
up by the system clock when you get a new mail) is showing when it
froze. If I go into Outlook and turn off the desktop alert, then the
PC freezing stops. So, I know that the Desktop Alert is the cause of
the problem. Has anyone else ever seen this? Th...eseutil compaction did not reduce size of priv1.edb file
I have Exchange 2000. The priv1.edb was nearing 13 GB so I had the users

hoping it would compact the file, but when it was done, the resulting
database file wasn't much smaller than 12.8 GB.
I thought that eseutil /d would compact the database and produce a smaller
edb file. What am I missing?

1) Ask in an Outlook Express newsgroup.
2) Export the Earthlink data in a format Outlook Express can import. CSV
files are not one of the formats that will work for mail messages.
