  • Question

  • Is there any hope of a Windows 8 version of this VERY helpful desktop gadget.

    (Obviously, it won't be a sidebar gadget.) <sigh>

  • After I installed this (a while ago) I started getting really ugly problems with Windows Update so I removed it all.

    I still have three updates that won't install, but the ugly messages are gone and other people are reporting these three updates don't install.

    I think I'll stay away from this hack.
