    Default New "Program" - ToolTipFixer

    NeoSmart Technologies has just released a new "program" of sorts. Actually, it's a patch for one of the oldest Windows bugs to date, and while it's nothing life-threatening, it can be pretty damn annoying - especially knowing that it's been there from 1994 (with Windows 95) to 2007 (with Windows Vista).

    The bug:


    With ToolTipFixer:



    ToolTipFixer is our free and tiny (88kb!) patch to permenantly address this issue.

    Microsoft acknowledges the bug, but their only advice is to "reboot your PC." - Just wonderful! (/sarcasm)

    Amazing. I got so used to that bug that I actually thought it was incurable. Thanks! Why the heck couldn't M$ issue a patch themselves?
