I have noticed that the floating tool tip describing the three buttons at the right hand side of any title bar does not appear, any suggestions please, winxp pro sp2. I know that they should appear, having seen them on other pcs

Ps I have been to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
and checked that ShowInfoTip has a value of 1

Hi Terry F

Maybe trying this will help click here you will need the registry optimiser version (trial)
Its the trial version and will only correct 10 errors at any one time,but you can rescan and repair unlimited times.

Even if this does not correct your problem,its very handy for a system clean up,and repairs etc...

Good luck

I tried the reg edit in the thread you suggested but it didn't fixit.
Skidsy,
thanks for the suggestion I have the full version but I don't like reg optimisers, I tried one a while ago and it made a right mess of my registry, I think that although I could run it, I wouldn't be sure that I had picked the right correction suggested and as I said, the last time was a disaster. It may work for others but not for me.
