Hello, guys!

Can you check if this update helps ?

Because, on VMWare it doesn't help :(

And, if you are interested, the issue originates from layered windows implementation in WPF on XP/2k3

I Installed the hotfix and rebooted my computer but it fix the problem

Sounds great!

And, also, I have found the way to fix this issue without installing hotfix.

Will complete in few days ;) with applying your patch about changing icons

This product is excellent... I love it... but I feel this particular issue needs to be revisited. At work I'm constantly locking my screen... and this issue is a pain to get around. This is the ONLY thing that is stopping me from using it. Eveytime I unlock my screen I either need to restart the app or add and remove system properties, etc... which is too cumbersome. Will this be addressed in later issues? (Note that switching tabs doesn't resolve the problem). Apart from that it's extremely useful. Thanks.

Hi mukoan,

Thank you for your warm words, you can leave them as a review to the project (

What OS  and version of ME do you have?

If you have ME and XP or 2k3 then we suggest you to update ME to version


Sincerely yours, Alex.
