I run Fanix Software's Hilitext
on Vista Home Premium with UAC On, but it doesn't fully work as it did on XP. Quote from Fanix's Web site:
Hilitext - The super-powered text finder tool
Hilitext is a powerful OS-level text finder tool that works with all Windows programs to help you find what you are looking for easier and faster. Powered with an innovative text highlighting technology, Hilitext automatically scans your screen and highlights every instance of your keywords in all open desktop windows including web pages, e-mail messages and other documents to help you find information more quickly and easily. It continues to highlight all instances of your target terms automatically as you surf from web page to web page or e-mail to e-mail.
Well, it doesn't work properly any more, as can be seen on the screenshots. The first is on Magic Mail Monitor
and the second on the DC forum's Recent Topics page, viewed with Firefox. Either Hilitext misses things completely, or it messes up the highlighting and/or the text underneath it. It does seem rather better on text editors, but that's only a limited use.
I think I e-mailed Fanix a long time ago, with no reply. Is there anything I need to check, or, please, is there an alternative software to do the same job?
