Vista not updating gets stuck
quick move from screen to screen across taskbar and thumbnail gets stuck every time With "Windows Default Style" not that much but still some occurances of stuck thumbnail windows happen even in "Windows Default Style" Hello Keith it seems like you guys fixed it pretty well...
Now the Window Thumbnail Previews no longer get stuck on the screen in "Windows Vista Style".
This update system, which is in place on both Windows 7 and Vista, usually works flawlessly-- unless the updates get stuck. If Windows continually tries to install updates when you shut down and then configure them for several minutes when you power your system on, the update is more than likely stuck.
The familiar blue screen appears with a notice stating, "Configuring Windows updates 0% complete.
If i may add 2 improvments: 1) is it possible to make the "Thumbnail Preview Size" value go even bigger - lets say 1200 - right now i think the limit is somewhere in 500 range since the thumbnails dont get any bigger if i enter 700 or 1200 value in the field - so there is a hard coded limit somewhere (in DP or in Windows) and it would be nice to have it increased : D 2) when i set "Thumbnail Preview Delay" to 0 the thumbnails show up almost instantly ( Oh my god this is freaking AWESOME !!!
Testing right now and i LOVE this tweak already so much !!! and say hello to the entire programming team for such an awesome support :) If i may be super greedy do you think you guys can looks into the milisecond delay set on "hiding" of thumbnails ?

Right now: 1) when i hover over taskbar button the thumbnail pops up "immeditaelly" like within 20ms 2) when i hover from taskbar button to taskbar button again the window thumbnails switch "immeditaelly" approx 20ms I LOVE THIS "REALTIME" FEEL - kudos guys for programming it so fast and efficient 3) when i move mouse AWAY COMPLETELY from taskbar the last thumbnail popup takes about 2-3 times longer to dissapear (approx 100 ms) iam not sure if this is a performance tax or a deliberate setting - is it possible to make it go away as "REALTIME" as it shows up and switches thumbnails...
That 2-3x slower dissapearance delay always throws me off when i am in the middle of super busy work - its just feels weird...
It is a different thing to find that Windows Updates fail to download or install in Windows.
