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".

I was in the middle of cleaning and reinstalling windows 98 on my computer,
then the computer was shut down. Now when I try to go and do over again it
just tells me missing operating system. it won't let me type anything,
restart the process, or do anything. It is just a black screen and just says
missing operating system. What do I do?!

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...Lock formula to cell
I want a formula to lock to a cell so that when I add or delete a column the

but that is no use when I have to unprotect the sheet to delete a column.
Anyone got thoughts on this?
without using VBA you can't achieve this

Yes, simply create a new PST file with File/New and store it in a place
where all users can access them (not in my documents, but for exaple in
