OK, I'm confused. According to this MSKB article, setting the value of ForegroundLockTimeout to 0 is how you correct issues with windows not taking focus when expected. But... I don't think I ever had this problem until the value was set to 0. Maybe I'm just nuts.
Thanks for the reply. You replied while I was hacking out my own.
I noticed that the install of the Process Tamer 2.0 beta changed my HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\\ForegroundLockTimeout value to 0 (from 200000). This causes annoying problems with application windows not grabbing focus when opened.
Is it necessary for ForegroundLockTimeout to be set to 0 for Process Tamer to work properly or optimally?
I've heard horror stories about PayPal, but I've been using them for quite a few years, and never had a problem. I can't imagine an easier service to use.
With that said, I do keep my bank accounts out of my PayPal profile, unless I need to be "verified" for some reason. And at that time, I'll add a bank account, then remove it ASAP afterward. I've been meaning to establish a special bank account just for PayPal, and have only a couple hundred bucks in there, but so far it has been one of those things I never get around to.
I recently tried YowCow.com, and hated it. First of all, to sell stuff, you need to create a special type of account, where try treat you like a full "vendor", which is ridiculous. (I occasionally sell a hard drive or something similar; I don't think that makes me a "hardware vendor".) Then, one day while Googling for my name (something I do occasionally to ferret out privacy leaks), I found my name and other private information posted on one of YowCow's pages. I complained to them, and the page soon disappeared. I closed my YowCow account after that.
