Would anyone know of a way to keep new pages from stealing the active page
upon opening? It is terriably frustrating to have to keep chasing the active
page as new pages open. I'm running XP on an ACER and our systems tend to be
slow because of our hardware combinations. It is not unsual for me to be
working in one docu and decide I need info from another docu or docus or web
site, go start those pages opening and go back to my active page, all without
loosing my train of thought - until the other pages finally start opening and
stealing my active page. After I have chased my...Windows XP Inbox Delay

Tough to say as from the description you've given us, it's tough to say what
happened. Was your backup good? Did you test it before reloading your
operating system? Was your backup current? Are your view settings correct?

To renew a cert, we use certreq to generate a requst file from an inf file as
certreq.exe -f -new ./pkcs7.inf ./123.req
The cert to be renewed is specifed with its thumbprint in the pkcs7.inf
file, so in fact the command will only renew it. But when running the
command, a "Certificate List" window will popup with a list cotaining only
that cert, and ask user to "Select certificate to be renewed". The window
break the running process and require user to do a click action...

Hi there, I just noticed an inconsistency in the Windows SDK help for
the ON_WM_DEVICECHANGE() macro. The help declares the function
prototype with an void return type. My compiler ( VC 7.1 ) shows an
error since it cannot cast the function pointer to a pointer with an
return type of BOOL.
If I change the return type to BOOL everything is fine. Is that a known
error, because I couldn't find that using google.
