These are so much more stable when using the Desktop manager and Audio player

I havent tried the ISO burner out yet ....... does it burn any file extension or Just .iso ?

Im currently having problems with the whole halflife series.

When playing the game, the damned thing runs in the upper left hand corner, while the deskltop is shown in the rest of the monitor. I've tried like 3 different video drivers, and nothing changes. All I've changed is that i upgraded from CS 1.1 to 1.3.

Is CS 1.3 the cause of this?

Now I know why everyones b#tching about it...:mad:

How exactly does desktop manager works? And what's its purpose?

Is it like Linux or something completely different?

Its pretty much like the Linux virtual Desktop.

It gives you four separate desktops, you can share work in them, or keep them separate.

I personally like it, cause I can kind of keep my work categorized, etc.

It works pretty good.

tronmaster : yes its like linux KDE desktop, it gives you four desktops to work with .... this version seems pretty stable too...


Geez guys it must be a hardware thing with Counterstrike, I have not had a problem on XP , i actually think it plays better

Well, I found out it wasnt Powertoys screwing up my CS, although the desktop did have something to do with it.

After completely uninstalling Powertoys, StylesXP, and god knows what else, I finally figured out that it was the taskbar being located on the top of the desktop that did it. I moved it on the bottom again, and PRESTO!, fixed...:rolleyes:

Anybody ever have this situation?

I find it very strange that there are so many people having troubles with cs and xp! I have been networking with friends for 5 days now, and still no error! What common errors are people getting in XP with cs?

In-Tray Audio Player

Hey, is there a way to get the in-tray audio player to show album art for songs that weren't copied from CD in WMP? Its bugging me that I'm only getting thumbnails coming up for certain items.

for the iso burner, just right click on the *.iso file and choose "record to CD".

i realise that. but none of the new tools are installed at all. i installed the new powertoys (the ones at the left hand side of the root xp-erience.org site if you're wondering) after i had uninstalled the original ones. the new power toys do not appear in the custom install and they don't install when i full install it. does anyone know why this can by. (i tried installing the third party installations of these powertoys but only the iso burner worked. the shplayer and bgswitch where installed in my system folder but didn't appear to work since i don't get an audio option in my taskbar toolbars and there is new background switcher tab on my desktop properties)

Re: Counter Strike.

I can't run it with ZoneAlarm - it lets me start a game, choose a side, but then instead of bringing the relevant menu to choose a skin, it goes into the map and allows me to look around - but not move!

Stopping ZoneAlarm fixes this, but feeds my paranoia. :rolleyes:

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
