Default Stupid Posts

In this thread I will post stupid posts I find, rather than cussing the person out.

My first entry:

Theres a screenshot if it can help

What could cause such things? my comps fine for everything else, i mean it runs stuff at full speed, no trouble on benchmarks or games, just these two little things...

START WITH WINDOWS VERSION,OK.? or
Get a new mouse.
1000 in 1 1000 in 2,seconds tick by.

Why don't we start a thread called stupid answers.

we'll put Get a new Mouse as a response to the question above at the top of the list.
The problem quite obviously relates to available memory and or virtual memory, something is using up CPU/RAM time/space and the pretty effects are no longer a priority for the OS.
This windows version isn't really that important. though at a guess I'd say windows 2000 or later. because I don't think transparant menus were available before this. (maybe in ME I don't know)

Yes a couple of seconds, its a standard mesurement, in actual fact a second is a standard scientific unit of time measurement.
Obviously he expected a little fatser than that.

So (what I consider) better answers to that problem would be.
how much ram do you have?
whats your CPU speed.
how big is your Page file.
are you running any processor intensive background tasks.
if you press ctrl alt delte and look at the task manager whats the CPU/RAM usage looking like.
Why don't you switch off the menus effects(right click desktop > properties > appertance > effects > turn off use fast fade).

of course more suggestions are wlecome...

idiots is not spelt like you've spelt it...
I suppose under the agreement reached in the Ban Bluto thread I should have just reported this...
But I thought this way was more fun.

This thread is especially hypocritical because you don't like Bluto's Snide remarks or pointless threads - this is both of these things to an extreme never before seen.

We are not here, as you have said before of Bluto, to insult people who don't know better; but to help them.
